A 25-year-old robber, who threatened women before stealing cigarettes from a shop in Portishead, has been jailed for more than two years.

Luke Golding was sentenced to 27 months behind bars for a raid on the Co-operative supermarket in Avon Way last summer.

On June 17 he threatened a pair of women at the store, telling them he had a weapon with him.

He jumped over the shop counter and stole some cigarettes before fleeing the scene.

The women told Bristol Crown Court they had felt ‘panicked’ during the crime.

Golding, of Briary Road, denied the robbery but was sent to jail by judge Michael Longman on Monday.
