A 38-year-old Long Eaton man has been charged with robbery, attempted robbery and two firearms offences following an alleged armed robbery in Borrowash.

Ian Watson, of Knightsyard Court, Long Eaton, was charged with the offences in connection with the alleged robbery of a Post Office on June 6 and an alleged attempted robbery on May 24 at the Mahal Convenience Store in Trowell Road, Wollaton, Nottingham.

He has also been charged with two offences of possession of a firearm and appeared at South Derbyshire Magistrates Court where he was remanded in custody. He will next appear at Derby Crown Court on July 11.

The investigation into the alleged offence in Borrowash is being led by Detective Inspector John Murphy and officers are still keen to hear from anyone who saw a silver Renault Clio that is believed to be linked to the incident.

“While a charge has been brought against Ian Watson our investigations are ongoing and we are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the Renault Clio parked or being driven anywhere between Borrowash and Draycott between 3.15pm and 3.45pm on Wednesday, June 6.”
