The incident unfolded in the car park of Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, Dublin, at 12.40pm on Sunday.

Two men approached staff working for the G4S security company who were delivering the substantial amount of money to ATMs at the shopping centre.

The raiders then threatened the employees and demanded that the cash box be handed over.

One of the suspects was armed with a handgun and both men wore balaclavas and blue boiler suits.

After getting the huge cash haul, the men fled the scene on foot via the shopping centre's multi-storey car park.

Their movements after leaving the car park are not known.

No arrests have been made in the case, which is being investigated by gardaí at Blanchardstown.
