Robbers smash into Newry shop

Ram raiders have smashed into a shop in Newry, County Down, escaping with a small sum of money.

The incident happened at a shop in the Camlough Road area on Friday morning.

Police said they received a report at about 04:00 GMT that the front of the shop had sustained significant damage to metal shutters and windows.

They said the damage appeared to have been caused by a "vehicle, possibly a 4x4, being driven deliberately at the shop in order to gain access".
