Two men have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at a Plymouth post office.

Two men, one armed with a crossbow, entered the Efford Road Post Office at about 0615 GMT on Wednesday.

One man threatened the shop owner with the weapon, pushing it into his face, before the raiders fled with money and cigarettes.

A 19-year-old man and a 23-year-old are currently in custody and being questioned by police.
