Police in Hastings have lifted a cordon around several streets after a robbery on the northern outskirts of the city.

An Armed Offenders Squad was called out early on Monday afternoon following a report that a dairy in the suburb of Mayfair had been robbed.

Armed police searched two blocks of nearby properties, but failed to find any trace of an offender.

Senior Sergeant Stuart Fleming says shop owners were shaken by the ordeal but not hurt, and nothing was taken.
