SuffolkNews Podcast: Lowestoft teenager locked up after attempted armed robbery
On the podcast today, a Lowestoft teenager who threatened a shop worker with an imitation gun has been locked up for two years.
Kyle Holder, 19, was sentenced to 28 months’ detention in a Young Offender Institution for the attempted robbery yesterday.
Holder, of Notley Road, had previously admitted three charges related to the attempted armed robbery of Young’s Convenience Store.
Police have today released CCTV footage of the incident, showing Holder pulling an imitation firearm on the shop worker.
Emergency services, including an air ambulance, were called to Melford Road at about 4.30pm on Monday.
Police closed the road while paramedics attended to the man, but he was declared dead at the scene.
The jury, who have listened to days of evidence during the inquest into the death of Clare Nash, also identified police errors over the investigation into her killer Charles Jessop.
Meanwhile, firefighters have been tackling a blaze at a workshop in a Suffolk village today.
Crews were sent to a farm in Woolpit Road in Rattlesden just past midday.
While photos show the workshop has been completely destroyed by the flames, a Suffolk fire and rescue service spokesman said thankfully no one is believed to have been hurt in the incident.
Those resorts, along with Lowestoft South of Claremont Pier and Kessingland, also won Seaside Awards.
