A masked gunman is being hunted by police over an attempted robbery at a South Yorkshire supermarket.

He struck at the Co-op in Worksop Road, Aston, Rotherham, at 10.30pm on Friday.

Police said he ordered a shop assistant to open the till but when she refused he left empty-handed.

The offender had a scarf covering his face, and wore a hat and distinctive Nike Air trainers with bright-coloured yellow or orange laces.

No-one was injured.

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111, quoting incident 1,205 of November 20.
