Jason Winstanley, 18, of Turpin Green Lane, Leyland will appear at Preston Magistrates’ Court this morning (Wednesday 20th December) charged with two counts of robbery.

At around 7pm on Tuesday 28th November, a man has entered McColls in Leyland Road where he approached the till and threatened a staff member with a knife. The offender made demands for money and left with around £200.
