Attempted axe robbery at Gloucestershire bank

Two men armed with an axe tried to rob a bank in Gloucestershire.

A police spokesman said the pair went into the building on Moreton-in-Marsh's High Street soon after midday on Thursday.

They told a member of staff to open a cash box - but when they saw it contained foreign currency the pair fled empty-handed.

Nobody was injured during the incident. A police spokesman appealed for witnesses.
