A kebab shop owner in New Zealand has won praise after staying calm enough to ignore an armed robber who attacked his store.

CCTV video released by Canterbury Police of the incident in Christchurch shows the robber dressed in a black jumper and a black mask push an open sports bag towards the worker.

But the man ignores him and continues to make an order for another customer. He hands over the order to the other man and then walks out fo camera shot. The confused would-be robber then picks up his bag and leaves empty-handed.
