Goole family threatened by armed gang

A family has been threatened by a gang of armed robbers who broke into their home in Goole.

Humberside Police said four men carrying "weapons" were involved in the raid at a house in Percy Street at about 17:00 GMT on Monday.

Nobody was hurt by the raiders, who left after the family handed over a purse containing a "significant amount" of cash and a necklace, police said.

The suspects were white and wore dark clothing. Two had Yorkshire accents.

Officers believe they fled the scene in a vehicle and may have driven towards Cottingham Street and Bridge Street.
