The trio - using what was described as a "bladed weapon" - targeted RS McColl in Bervie Brow at about 21:50 on Thursday.

They escaped with a four-figure sum of money, as well as alcohol and cigarettes.

Grampian Police said the men were thought to be aged between 18 and 25, had local accents, and hooded tops.
