A shop manager who pretended to be the victim of a robbery she helped organise has been jailed for four and a half years.

Michelle Williams, 34, was captured on CCTV playing the part of the innocent victim who was overpowered by a knife and crowbar-wielding assailant and forced to hand over almost £3,000 in cash.

On Wednesday, Cardiff Crown Court heard how police initially believed Williams's account but soon found out she was actually in on the planned robbery, which left her unsuspecting co-worker terrified and feeling betrayed.

James Wilson, for the prosecution, told the court Williams was dropped off at the One Stop convenience store in Usk, South Wales, by her partner Benjamin Bailey, 37, at 5.50am on February 12 last year.
