Axe-wielding raiders hold up Credit Union

AXE-wielding raiders have held up a credit union in Northern Ireland.

Terrified staff were threatened by the three-man gang during the ordeal on Main Street in Forkhill, south Armagh.

Detectives believe the robbers were also armed with a black handgun.

The trio entered the premises shortly after 7:30pm last night before forcing workers to hand over a sum of money.

It is believed they made their getaway in a silver coloured VW Golf.

A PSNI spokesman said: "Anyone who witnessed the robbery or who has any information is asked to contact detectives at Newry CID on 0845 600 8000.

"Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
