A VIDEO of an armed robbery at Tesco Express in Eastwood was uploaded onto Youtube, it was revealed in a council meeting this week.
The video was only on the website for ten minutes, but in that time it was downloaded by a teenage girl, whose laptop police recovered.
The girl’s mum rang the police when she saw the footage.
They temporarily took her laptop off her to get a copy of the video in the hope it might help them trace the robbers.
Officers are unsure who filmed the incident and who uploaded it onto the internet.
A security guard was shot in the knee by armed robbers as he filled up the cash point at the Hilltop supermarket.
Last week police issued pictures of items found in the getaway car.
