Were you in the Moorland View Road area yesterday morning?

The driver of the lorry was making a delivery at the One Stop store in Moorland View Road just before 7am on Saturday, May 4, when he was approached by two masked men.

The offenders then stole the cigarettes and made off on foot. We believe they have then used a nearby vehicle to flee the scene.

A spokesman for Derbyshire Police said: "Did you see two men acting suspiciously in the area in the early hours of the morning? Do you have your own CCTV that may have captured the men or a vehicle?
