An armed robber was chased down an Edinburgh street by the shop owner he targeted, police have said.

The thief made off with a three-figure sum following a raid on Meadows Wine off-licence in Melville Terrace.

He was chased for around 40 yards along nearby Sciennes Place by the 40-year-old shop owner before managing to disappear out of sight.
