Two masked men - one armed with a suspected firearm - robbed a Co Antrim shop on Saturday evening.

Police believe that the men stole a sum of money and tobacco from a shop in the Scotch area of Carrickfergus before making off on foot in the direction of Taylors Avenue.

No one was injured in the robbery reported to have taken place at around 8.50pm.

The robbers were both masked and were wearing dark clothing.

Detective Constable Loreen Glenn said: “I would appeal to anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area, or anyone who knows anything about this armed robbery, to contact detectives at Ballymena Police Station on the non emergency number 101.

"Or if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
