A second incident took place at the Royal Bank of Scotland on Queen’s Street in Nuneaton today (Monday October 12) around 11.15am when a cashier was threatened with a weapon and ordered to hand over cash.

No one was injured during either incident but a substantial amount of cash was taken.

A 41-year-old was arrested in Nuneaton town centre shortly after the incident today (Monday) and is currently in police custody.

Cash and a weapon have been recovered by police.
