Lincolnshire police are appealing for witnesses after a fuel station was robbed twice in one week.

Last night, officers were called the Jet Service Station on Manthorpe Road, Grantham, after receiving a report of a robbery just before 8pm.

Police said an amount of money and cigarettes were taken.

The service station also reported another robbery last Tuesday whereby a man reportedly entered the service station and made demands to staff.

Police say that enquiries are underway to determine whether the two incidents are linked.

Detective Sergeant Simon Mason, CID Grantham, said: “We are looking for help in identifying the offender for this crime.

“If you saw anything last night that you feel may be related in the area around Manthorpe Road between 7 pm and 9 pm, or if you have any other information relating to this incident please contact us as soon as possible.”

Police are encouraging anyone who has not spoken to officers already and witnessed the incident to contact them on 101 quoting incident 415 of February 26.
