A hunt's underway for a gang of five who carried out an armed raid on a bank in county Roscommon yesterday.

Four men wearing balaclavas entered the Bank of Ireland in Strokestown at 2.15pm, threatening staff with a handgun and iron bars.

No one was injured, but the raiders escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash in a black Audi car, driven by a fifth man who had been waiting outside.

No arrests have been made but an investigation is ongoing and Gardai have been carrying out searches in the area.
