VIDEO - CCTV: Customer tackles shotgun-wielding raider

A customer who tackled a gun-wielding raider has been praised for his bravery.

Darren Baker, 48, from Norwich, wrestled the sawn-off shotgun-carrying robber to the floor during the raid on a branch of Premier Stores in the city.

He had raced to the shop after his wife, Sharon, told him she had been confronted by the raider, who was wearing a crash helmet, while shopping in the store.

Norfolk Police released CCTV footage of the dramatic encounter after Stephen Lawrence, 54, of Watson Grove, Norwich, was jailed for 11 years after admitting attempted robbery at Norwich Crown Court on Wednesday.
