A CLAW hammer and a crow bar were used by robbers to threaten staff at a convenience store in Weston yesterday.

Cash was stolen from Spar in Loxton Road after thieves entered through a rear store room.

The offenders made off with a till tray via a cycle path towards the railway line and St John's Football Club on the Bournville estate.

One of the culprits was wearing dark coloured tracksuit type bottoms, black trainers and a grey long-sleeved top with another light coloured hooded top underneath.
