Hunt for gun boy

Police are searching for a 13- year-old boy who held up an elderly couple at gunpoint. The boy demanded money from Herbert Clough, 72, and his wife, Hilda, 68, as they were getting out of their car in Grimsby, Humberside, but he fled empty- handed when they refused to hand over any cash.
