Shopkeeper fends off knife-wielding robbers

A have-a-go hero shopkeeper sent two knife-wielding robbers fleeing empty-handed - by bashing them with a newspaper stand before throwing a bottle of booze at them. Dramatic CCTV shows the two masked raiders bursting into the newsagents at around 10.30pm on Thursday (26/10). The thugs can both be seen brandishing large blades as they threaten the worker behind the till at Northants News, in Northampton. But they got more than they bargained for when the brave shopkeeper started fending them off with the newsstand as they hacked at him with their knives.
