Armed robbers target Newcastle cash machine

Armed robbers have stolen cash from two security guards in Newcastle.

The guards were filling a cash machine at the junction of Welbeck Road and St Anthony's Road when they were targeted.

Two men carrying a firearm and a hammer threatened the guards, before making off with an undisclosed amount of money in a stolen car.

The vehicle was found burned out a short time later in Byker Terrace. Police are appealing for witnesses to the robbery at about 10:04 BST.
