Three robbers tied up a husband and wife and stole cash and jewellery from a house on Anglesey.

The couple were unhurt but said to be shaken up after being threatened with a screwdriver during the incident at about 2100 GMT on Monday in Pentraeth.

The robbers, whose heads were covered, stole the home owner's silver Nissan Qashqai to escape.

The vehicle was later found abandoned near an Indian restaurant at Four Crosses, Menai Bridge.

"The offenders stole a substantial amount of cash and jewellery," said Det Insp Keith Ellis from North Wales Police.

"The couple were not injured but shaken up," he added.

Det Insp Ellis said crimes of this type were rare and the police wanted to reassure the public that the offence was being investigated "robustly" and would continue to do so until the robbers were are brought to justice.

Any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact North Wales Police on 0845 6071001 (Welsh language line) or 0845 6071002 (English language line).
