A man and a woman have been arrested over an armed robbery.

An imitation gun and cash were also seized by detectives investigating the hold-up in Main Street, Blanchardstown, west Dublin.

During a follow-up search, a man in his late teens was arrested and a sum of money recovered.

In a further search at a house in Briarswood, Blanchardstown, at 2am, a woman was also arrested and an imitation firearm seized.
