    Kathryn Langley

    BBC Live reporter

    Police are looking for two men who robbed a garage in Hailsham at knifepoint. 

    They threatened a member of staff at the Hawkswood Service Station before taking £130 and 10 packets of cigarettes. 

    It happened at about 21:25 GMT on 27 December. 

    Quote Message: Fortunately the staff member was not injured but has understandably been left shaken by this incident. I would ask anyone who was in the area at the time and who saw anything suspicious to get in touch. Even something that you may think is really insignificant could really help." from Det Con Paul Kelly Sussex Police
