A gun has been held to the face of a man during a robbery at his home in Magherafelt, County Londonderry.

Two masked men called at the house on the Shore Road in the Ballymaguigan area just before 2100 BST on Sunday.

They went to the back door of the property and demanded money from the man.

The gun was then put to his face. The robbers made off with the man's wallet which contained cash.
