West Belfast armed robbery on cash in transit van

Armed robbers have stolen money from a cash in transit van in west Belfast.

Two men, one armed with a handgun, threatened the driver of the van outside licensed premises in Ladybrook Park at around 14:00 BST on Wednesday.

The men made off with a cashbox towards Riverdale Park Drive on foot and were seen putting it into the boot of a silver Peugeot 406.

They are then believed to have got into a red Rover car which was last seen near Nutts Corner.

The silver Peugeot was later found in Roumania Rise in west Belfast.

The driver of the cash van was unhurt in the robbery but left badly shaken.
