A robber carrying a knife was beaten with mops in two consecutive raids as he was trying to loot off-licences.

Stephen Hoggan, 49, has been jailed for five years after he admitted robbing three branches of One O One off-licence in Glasgow with a knife in April 2017.

After being hit by a mop as he fled from one shop making away with £37 from the till, Hoggan was mopped out of another branch of the franchise the following day by a shop assistant after he stole two bottles of alcohol.
