The thieves, one of whom was armed with a white baton-style weapon, entered the shop in Magpie Road at around 11.45am on Friday (March 15).

The men forced the paid member of staff and volunteer into a bathroom, before stealing a large quantity of cash from the store’s safe.

The suspects all wore high visibility waistcoats on top of dark clothing and gloves with plain white facemasks - one carried a black holdall.
