First published in Edenfield by , Court reporter

ONE of two armed raiders who brought terror to a village post office is facing jail.

Micah Buckle, 25, admitted two charges of robbery against Gordon Worth and Margaret Wilkins, who ran Edenfield Post Office, last November 25, at Burnley Crown Court.

The court was told Buckle apparently had a sledgehammer and his accomplice was holding a lump hammer.

Prosecutor Sarah Statham said CCTV at the premises showed the two men going into the shop.

The other man is yet to be caught.

The defendant, of Smedley Street, Manchester, was remanded in custody until March 9, for a pre-sentence report.
