BREAKING: Paper-boys attacked and robbed

FOUR paper-boys were attacked and robbed this morning as they began their delivery rounds.

The attackers stole two bikes and a mobile phone shortly after the delivery boys left two newsagents at 7am.

The victims had just left The Elm Grove Newsagents in Elm Grove and Vino newsagents in South Street when they were attacked in the nearby streets.

An 18-year old man has been arrested on suspicion of robbery.

The boys were not seriously hurt.
