All four have been charged with robbery and are due to appear at Wigan Magistrates Court today, Friday 15 August 2014.

Just before 8pm on Wednesday, August 13 2014, a Vauxhall Vectra pulled up at the back of a Co-op store on Chelford Drive, Astley.
Three men got out of the car and went inside the shop, demanding money. One of the men was holding an axe.
A large quantity of money was given to them before they left and was later recovered.
