There has been an armed robbery in the grounds of the Royal Victoria Hospital in west Belfast.

Two men with a handgun threatened a cash delivery driver as he was bringing money to a cash machine at about 0730 GMT on Monday.

They escaped with what police have described as a large amount of money and fled on foot towards the Falls Road.

Police have appealed for witnesses to the robbery to contact them.

They would also like to hear from anyone who saw a dark-coloured Volkswagen Golf in the hospital grounds early in the morning.
