Police appeal over Newry armed robbery

Two men with a hatchet and what is believed to be a gun have robbed a shop in Newry.

The masked men went into the shop on the Dublin Road at 21:50 GMT on Saturday.

They forced a member of staff to hand over the contents of two tills and made off with the cash in a car which was later found burnt out at Ravensdale Park.

No-one was injured but the staff were left badly shaken.

Police have appealed for witnesses.
