Today's video story: A post office worker foiled a knife-wielding robber in Cardiff by lashing out with a baseball bat.

CCTV footage then shows her chasing the man out of the shop from behind the counter. Ms Hooper said she thought the incident was a "Halloween joke" at first. Postmaster Shady Taha, who was in his office at the time of the incident, described her as the "hero of the day".
