“The only thing I could find to arm myself with was a bottle of sherry.”

A grandfather today told how he fought off masked men wielding Samurai swords as they tried to rob his post office.

The two balaclava-wearing intruders took turns at slashing Alan Garratt with the three-foot long weapons at the Leicestershire branch, he said.

But they fled empty-handed after the 68-year-old, who had previously undergone surgery for a triple heart bypass, fought back with a sherry bottle.

Mr Garratt needed eight stitches in his left arm after Monday evening’s attack.

I didn’t really feel it when I was cut on the arm and hand until afterwards. There was blood everywhere.
