A TRIO will appear in the dock together later this month to find out their fate over an armed robbery in Leigh.

Patrick Claydon, 48, from Brentwood, Tommy Aitken, 37, of no fixed abode, and Sandra Clarke, 44, from Leigh, are appearing at Snarebrook Crown Court on March 31.

It comes after the men admitted conspiracy to commit armed robbery and possession of firearms while Clarke pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit an armed robbery.

She has also admitted possessing class A and B drugs with intent to supply.

The threesome were arrested after trying to rob a post office in Eastwood Road North on November 13 with two shotguns and a stun gun.
