Sword used in Enniskillen bank robbery

Police tape

Three masked men, one of whom was armed with a short sword, have robbed a bank in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh.

The trio entered the Halifax bank at High Street shortly before 1030 GMT on Friday.

They ran off with a small sum of cash and are believed to have left the area in a silver Volkswagen car.

Police believe they transferred to a silver Toyota vehicle, which was found abandoned at Culmore Gardens in west Belfast shortly before 1400 GMT.

A police spokesman said: "We are keen to speak to anyone who saw the men in Enniskillen, either before or after the robbery, and anyone who saw the Toyota being abandoned in west Belfast.

"The cars involved were a silver Volkswagen Passat which bore a WKZ registration plate and a silver Toyota Avensis with an English plate, SO 05 OGB.

"We would like to hear from anyone who saw the cars in Enniskillen, in Belfast or travelling between the two locations."
