This is the incredible moment a former soldier disarmed a robber during a raid in a corner shop - before turning his own gun on him.

Brave Antony Wolfe, 61, says his military training 'kicked in' as he wrestled James Gowland, 31, to the floor in Swindon, Wiltshire, on January 20.

Antony, a retired teacher and ex-soldier, was alerted by neighbours to the armed robbery and ran straight into the shop to take on the gunman who was attempting to steal cash from a till. He managed to get the weapon off him before finding out if it was loaded by pointing it at his head and asking: 'If I pulled this will it blow your head off?' Antony is seen even calmly smiling as he brandishes the gun as police arrive. Hooded Gowland entered Ermin Food and Wine with a scarf over his face brandishing the gun.
