A teenager who was threatened by a man with an axe while working

:00:07.:00:10.

at his family's shop in Gravesend says he was terrified

:00:11.:00:12.

the armed robber would harm his younger brothers.

:00:13.:00:14.

A police helicopter was scrambled to search for the suspect,

:00:15.:00:17.

This is the terrifying moment a man brandishing an axe burst into a shop

:00:18.:00:25.

in Gravesend and tried to force the 18-year-old cashier

:00:26.:00:28.

The shop assistant, Havinees, is the owner's son

:00:29.:00:35.

and his two younger brothers, aged 14 and 15,

:00:36.:00:38.

I thought he was joking so I started smiling at first.

:00:39.:00:44.

he wasn't joking and I got really scared.

:00:45.:00:47.

I was worried he was going to hurt my brothers because he, like,

:00:48.:00:50.

got the axe up, trying to, like, threaten me.

:00:51.:00:55.

In all the commotion, one of the brothers was able

:00:56.:00:57.

to alert their dad who was loading up a van at the back

:00:58.:01:00.

My son said to me, "Come in, Dad, quickly.

:01:01.:01:05.

He heard my voice then he ran, opened the door and ran away.

:01:06.:01:11.

The suspect fled out of this door,

:01:12.:01:18.

despite the best efforts of a police helicopter

:01:19.:01:23.

and a dog unit which were called out

:01:24.:01:25.

Havinees says it is made him feel very vulnerable.

:01:26.:01:28.

I wasn't before but now I'm, like, thinking

:01:29.:01:32.

anyone can walk in at any time and then ask for money.

:01:33.:01:35.

Kent Police say the suspect is white, around 5'7"

:01:36.:01:37.

:01:38.:01:45.

A police officer has been seriously injured in a collision

:01:46.:01:47.

A police vehicle and a silver BMW were involved in the incident

:01:48.:01:52.

in Old Road West just after four o'clock.

:01:53.:01:53.

The occupant of the car suffered minor injuries.

:01:54.:01:56.

A 26-year-old man from Northfleet has been arrested

:01:57.:01:58.

The family of a man from Eastbourne who died of altitude sickness

:01:59.:02:05.

in South America have raised ?10,000 to fund

:02:06.:02:07.

Adam Savory was 25 when he died on a trip to Peru in 2012.

:02:08.:02:12.

The charity set up in his memory is helping a team of sports

:02:13.:02:17.

scientists at Brighton University find out why some people

:02:18.:02:20.

are particularly susceptible to altitude sickness.

:02:21.:02:24.

They've also developed an app to help other traveller

:02:25.:02:26.

Now, Brighton suffered a humiliating defeat in the fourth

:02:27.:02:32.

They were beaten 3-1 by the non-league side Lincoln City,

:02:33.:02:36.

In form and focusing on Premiership promotion,

:02:37.:02:40.

Brighton Hove's FA Cup run took them

:02:41.:02:43.

The Seagulls started well, a goal from Richard Towell.

:02:44.:02:47.

But then everything went horribly wrong.

:02:48.:02:50.

First, a penalty for Lincoln, then the Albion scored an own goal.

:02:51.:02:53.

The promise of the Imps becoming giant-killers was no longer

:02:54.:02:56.

a fairy tale when Theo Robinson made it 3-1.

:02:57.:03:04.

We have to burden that as a club and certainly

:03:05.:03:10.

But these are tough days and you hope that what you can do

:03:11.:03:14.

But being taught a lesson by a club

:03:15.:03:19.

three divisions below Brighton Hove was tough for fans.

:03:20.:03:22.

I'm a big supporter of Brighton and...

:03:23.:03:27.

I don't really mind because I think we're going up

:03:28.:03:36.

I'm a little bit disappointed but if we go up to the

:03:37.:03:39.

The last time Lincoln City got to the last 16

:03:40.:03:44.

A historic result which the Falmer Faithful will want to forget.

:03:45.:03:49.

Peter Whittlesea, BBC South East Today.

:03:50.:03:56.

Now for a look at the weather with Wendy Hurrell.

:03:57.:03:59.

This afternoon's rain is clearing away from us now.

:04:00.:04:02.

It was a rather soggy Sunday after all but it

:04:03.:04:04.

Some lovely bright skies across the region first thing this

:04:05.:04:08.

morning, then it clouded over and we got the rain.

:04:09.:04:11.

It will be a mostly cloudy week, although much milder

:04:12.:04:14.

East Grinstead could start the day tomorrow

:04:15.:04:17.

And it will be a similar temperature wherever you're setting

:04:18.:04:22.

However, there will be a lot of cloud around,

:04:23.:04:25.

low cloud, misty, murky stuff, particularly up over the Downs,

:04:26.:04:27.

There won't be much to shift it into the afternoon,

:04:28.:04:31.

in fact, it might produce us a little bit of drizzle

:04:32.:04:34.

One or two places tomorrow will get to 10 Celsius and that's a similar

:04:35.:04:38.

temperature we're going to be seeing this week.

:04:39.:04:40.

Double figures but under cloudy skies with spells of rain,

:04:41.:04:43.

if I'm going to pick a day some brighter weather,

:04:44.:04:45.

That is from us now. We will be back at breakfast tomorrow morning.

:04:46.:04:58.

Goodbye. Good evening. Very soggy down south

:04:59.:05:13.

today. A wash-out of the day for some of us. Scotland, northern parts

:05:14.:05:18.

of England, had sunshine. It's going to be cold. Already is. This is what

:05:19.:05:22.

is heading our way for the week ahead. We need our brollies out and

:05:23.:05:27.

it'll turn Wendy later in the week. The rain is clearing. I wouldn't say

:05:28.:05:31.

necessarily particularly drying out after this rain band boost towards

:05:32.:05:35.

the east, it'll stay damp but cloudy and murky in the north. Maybe

:05:36.:05:40.

freezing fog in places. It will be cold in the glands of Scotland. It

:05:41.:05:46.

could be down to -10 degrees, it's already about -5 or 6 degrees right

:05:47.:05:49.

now. Monday

:05:50.:05:50.
