The man behind an attempted robbery that left a shop assistant “shaking and tearful” has been jailed.

Robert Waring (22), of no fixed abode, was also sentenced for inflicting grievous bodily harm on a vulnerable friend just four months before the incident at Pratt’s Newsagents, in Padiham Road, Burnley.

On both occasions, Waring, who has been locked up for a total of four years, was on bail.
