Man robbed during kidnapping in west Belfast

A man has handed over a sum of cash during a kidnapping in west Belfast.

The man was driving along Norglen Road at 1:20 GMT on Monday when he was approached by two men.

He was forced to remain in his vehicle by the men who threatened him before ordering him to return to his work in the Falls Road area.

The man was forced to hand over cash and driven to the Broadway area before being let out of the car.

He was not injured but was left badly shaken by the ordeal.

A black Renault Clio believed to have been involved in the incident was discovered burnt out in the Broadway Court area a short time later.

Police have appealed for information.
