Brave Boots staff hold off robber

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A GROUP of Boots work­ers were praised for their brav­ery af­ter they wres­tled and de­tained a box­ing coach who had at­tempted to steal from the store.

The four women suc­cess­fully held Michael New­ton, 48, af­ter he tried to rob the Hull shop on Septem­ber 30.

CCTV footage shows the box­ing coach en­ter the store and walk be­hind the counter to grab the till. One of the women then runs be­hind him and grabs a plas­tic lid which she uses to stop him, while three oth­ers try to grab New­ton away from the tak­ings.

New­ton was given a 12-month sus­pended sen­tence, and or­dered to do 150 hours of un­paid work.
