Gardaí in Co Donegal are hunting for a man who tried to rob a post office on Friday morning.

Detectives say the lone raider smashed security glass inside Kilmacrennan Post Office around 9.30am but then fled empty-handed.

Staff were left terrified by the incident, said Gda Supt David Kelly.

The suspect was described as about 6ft tall, of heavy build and was wearing a blue tracksuit.

He fled the area in a metallic blue Peugeot 206 which may have had a Northern Ireland registration plate.

Supt Kelly described the incident as "very serious".

He appealed to anyone with information to call Milford Gardaí on 07491 53060.
