Return address for PO raiders

POLICE on both sides of the Border were last night hunting an armed gang which raided a post office -- exactly a year to the day after the last robbery.

Five men, armed with knives, an axe and a baseball bat, burst into St Johnston Post Office in Co Donegal at 11am yesterday.

Staff and customers were threatened before the gang made off with an undisclosed sum of money.

On July 12 last year another gang, armed with a handgun, took just 18 seconds to rob the same post office.
