Post Office staff threatened and robbed in Londonderry

Staff at a post office in Londonderry have been threatened during an armed robbery on Monday.

Two men hijacked a car in the Sandbank Cottages area of Shantallow and drove it to the post office on the Culmore Road.

The men threatened staff and robbed the safe of a sum of money.

The police and Army bomb experts were called to examine the vehicle which was abandoned on the Coney Road.

However, a police spokesman later said that "nothing untoward was found".
