A shop assistant who prevented an armed robbery by throwing water over a would-be thief has been praised for her bravery.
Joan Wright was one of two shop workers who were confronted by a masked man holding a knife in the shop in Ballymena, County Antrim, on Tuesday.
CCTV footage of the incident shows Ms Wright throwing a jug of water at him after he demanded money from staff at Moorhead's Spar shop on Larne Road.
The soaked intruder left empty-handed.
