A man was hit on the head during a robbery in Ramsbottom.

It happened around 7.20pm on Sunday 12 January 2014 when two masked men went into Bargain Booze on Bolton Road West.

They threatened staff and demanded money. One of the men hit a member of staff on the head with what was believed to be a handgun before taking cash from the till.

Both men left in the direction of Ramsbottom town centre.

One of the men is described as being possibly in his early 20s, around 6ft tall and slim. He is described as wearing a white ‘V for Vendetta’ mask, a black tracksuit jacket with hood up, light blue jeans with scuff marks and grey or blue deck shoes with white laces.

The other man is described as slim and was wearing a dark grey Adidas hooded top, white and grey jogging bottoms and black trainers.

Police are appealing for information and witnesses.

Detective Sergeant Alison Byrne said: “The man was not badly injured but the men did manage to get away with the cash.

“We are urging anyone who was in the area and remembers seeing the men described to get in touch with police.”

Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 8181 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Nine-year-old boy locked in safe during game of hide and seek

Published

on

A Nine-year-old boy became trapped in a safe during a game of hide and seek at his grandfathers home in Berlin.

He had to be rescued by firefighters after he hid inside the sade. He was playing with his little brother at home in Lichterfelde, Berlin.

Believing he has found the perfect hiding place the boy went inside the unused safe and closed the door locking himself in.

The boy was playing with his little brother at the home in Lichterfelde, Berlin, when he found the ultimate hiding place.

His hiding place was eventually found but his grandfather was the only person who knew the code for the safe and he was away.

They could not get in contact with him and called for help from the local fire brigade.

They tested family birthdays for three hours in the hope they’d crack the code while pumping oxygen into the safe via a tiny crack.

As a specialist team arrived who was able to cut the safe open they managed to enter a successful six-digit code.

Firefighters say the child remained calm throughout the ordeal and was shocked but unharmed.

Berlin firefighter Thomas Kirstein said it was a happy ending and super early Christmas present.

Hopefully, he won’t be hiding in there again and in future, they’ll be keeping the door shut because this incident could have been very different.

23-year-old Corrie Disappeared after a night out in Bury St Edmunds in September 2016.

“I would beg ANYONE who has information no matter how small they think it may be to come forward. There may be someone out there that thought that because the police were so sure Corrie was in the landfill that there information was not important so never came forward. Please do it now.

“If you have already left details with the police but feel you have not been taken seriously or ‘re contacted, please get back in touch with them and ask what they have done and if they need further information from you.

“Corrie is not in the landfill so something else has happened. It is impossible to evaporate one of these theories we have had from the start now must be what has happened. Please please help me to get as much information to the police as possible. Someone out there knows something.”
