A GROUP of machete-wielding bank robbers stole a “large quantity” of cash during a daytime raid on a security van.
The vehicle was targeted outside the Royal Bank of Scotland on High Street, Swallownest, at about 11.45am today.
Police later recovered a white Transit van, on King Street, which they believe was used in the raid. The exact amount of cash taken is not yet known.
Officers have appealed for information from anyone who witnessed the robbery, saw the van in the Swallownest area or might have any other useful information.
