Man attempts to rob fish and chip shop with a banana

Police in the UK are looking for a man who tried to rob a fish and chip shop using what looks like a banana in a plastic bag. The robber entered the shop and pointed the plastic wrapped banana in the faces of the workers demanding they open the register. His act didn't fool anyone however and he ended up fleeing empty handed. 

The robbery happened at the shop in Leigh Road, Atherton, at around 8.45pm on Saturday, February 11. The offender is described as white, around 6ft tall and of a slim build. He was wearing a blue jumper with a black hooded jacket underneath and had black material covering most of his face.

DS Johnson added: 'If anyone recognises the man in the CCTV footage, or has any other information that may help us, then I urge you to get in touch.'
