Three people are being hunted by police following an armed robbery at a service station where a five figure sum of money was stolen.

Police said two security guards received minor injuries during an incident at about 1300 BST at the Bowhouse Service Station near Falkirk.

Two men, who had their faces covered, were described as about 5ft 5in and 5ft 7in tall with English accents.

It is believed they were driven away in a silver Audi by a third person.

A spokesman for Central Scotland Police urged anyone with information to contact them.

Det Insp Ronnie Isles said: "The two security guards were not seriously hurt but have been left shaken."
