Two masked and armed men snatched cash from security guards outside a Northumberland shop.
Two security guards were at a cash point at Spar, Station Road, Bedlington Station, when they were approached by the pair on Saturday morning.
Northumbria Police said the robbers had what looked like a handgun. No-one was hurt.
Police are trying to trace a white van they left in and the driver of a black Citroen car seen in the area.
