An armed man has fired off a shot before taking cash from an Ashburton hotel.

A handful of people were inside the Ashburton Hotel on Racecourse Road around 11.20pm on Wednesday when the lone assailant entered and fired, but no one was hurt.

Earlier in the month police said they were concerned about the number of such robberies in Canterbury lately and have been offering bar owners prevention advice.
