The woman was outside Morrisons when she was approached by a would-be robber in his late 40s who pulled a kitchen knife from a carrier bag and demanded cash.

She managed to run inside the store to raise the alarm and escaped from her ordeal unhurt.

The man was white, around 5ft 5ins tall, and was last seen walking off from the supermarket on Chatsworth Road.

Witnesses to the attempted robbery, which happened at 8.30pm yesterday, should call Derbyshire Police on 0845 123 3333.
