Derbyshire police are appealing for witnesses to an armed robbery which took place at a petrol station near to Chesterfield.

At around 9.15pm on Wednesday, January 3, 2007, a member of staff at the ESSO station, on the A617 Heath, was approached by a man with a handgun.

The man threatened the assistant and made off with cash from the till and cigarettes.

He left in a small white unmarked van with black trim. The registration number was obscured.

No shots were discharged during the incident and the victim was left shocked but not injured.

The man is described as white, approximately six foot tall and fat. He wore a black balaclava, black padded jacket and a black top underneath. The top had a light-coloured motif across the stomach. He also wore dark jeans and black footwear.
