A man has been arrested on suspicion of robbery after staff at a fish and chip shop in Reading were threatened with a gun during a raid.

Two men went in the back door of Lemon Plaice in Tilehurst on Sunday evening and threatened two staff members with what appeared to be a pistol.

They put money into a bag before escaping.

A 28-year-old man from Tilehurst was arrested on Tuesday and bailed until 12 February.

Thames Valley Police is still appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Det Sgt Sara Harrison, from Reading Force CID, said: "We are currently investigating the circumstances of this robbery.

"I would like to appeal to anyone who has any information about the incident or who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at around the time of the robbery to contact police."

The raid happened shortly after 20:20 GMT.
