Staff at a Derby catering firm have been attacked by gang of four masked robbers armed with hammers.

Four staff at the firm were injured during the raid and taken to Royal Derby Hospital for treatment, but later released.

The robbers escaped with a large quantity of cash from McTurk Catering Supplies on Holcombe Street, a Derbyshire police spokesman said.

Police said the raid happened on Friday evening in Normanton.

The gang attacked some of the staff and one man was hit in the head with a hammer.
