Shop workers were attacked with a noxious substance after confronting shoplifters in North Tyneside.

Three men entered JD Sports at the Silverlink Retail Park in Wallsend and tried to leave without paying for items.

Members of staff then tried to intervene and as a result, have had a noxious substance sprayed at them.

Police are now investigating the incident which occurred at approximately 4pm on Thursday afternoon.

No one has yet been arrested.

A spokesperson for Northumbria Police said: “Those sprayed were seen by paramedics at the scene but did not require hospital treatment.

“A police investigation is currently on-going.”
