The incident occurred shortly before 10pm on Sunday (March 27th), when two men wearing balaclavas and carrying metal bars entered the store. They stole a quantity of cigarettes and alcohol before making off.

A 17-year-old from Burnley was later arrested and last night (Tuesday) was charged with aggravated burglary. He is due to appear at Blackburn Magistrates’ Court today to answer the charges.
