A disabled man was arrested after he reportedly robbed a bank with a shotgun that was hidden under his crutch.

The 56-year-old assailant was detained when he held up a bank in Greece for the second time using the weapon that was kept under his single walking aide.

His first attempt at a raid had failed because of a time delay on a safe but he was able to escape with 12,000 euros (£9,888) when he attacked a second bank.

The suspect, who has only been identified as a local baker, has been charged with robbery and firearms offences.

He reportedly said he stole the money because he was in debt following the economic crisis in Greece.
