The former private school student was high on drink or drugs and not wearing any shoes when he carried out the raid.

The defendant screamed at Mr Wheatley: “I’m going to slice your ******* throat and kill you.”

He was handed £125 in cash before he calmly walked out of the store.

Church, of Kings Fee, Monmouth, was sent to a young offender institution for three years by a judge at Newport Crown Court.

The CCTV footage was released by CPS Wales.
