Masked gang confronts east Belfast club staff

Police are appealing for information about an incident involving a number of masked men outside an east Belfast social club.

It happened at about 11:00 GMT on Monday outside the Harland and Wolff Welders Club in Wye Street.

Two staff members were leaving in their car when they were blocked in by the masked men in a silver Skoda car.

One man with a baseball bat got out and approached the staff members who reversed away and left the area.

Police believe the incident may have been an attempted robbery.
