Omagh hotel robbed at gunpoint

Three men armed with what is believed to be a shotgun have robbed an Omagh hotel at gunpoint.

The robbers targeted the Mellon County Hotel, Beltany Road, Omagh, in the early hours of Sunday.

They entered the premises at about 5am and ordered a member of staff to hand over a sum of cash.

Detectives appealed for information: "Anyone who was travelling along the Beltany Road between Omagh and Newtownstewart between 4.30am and 5.30am and saw anyone acting suspiciously, or witnessed any vehicles making off at speed around this time, is asked to contact CID in Omagh on 0845 600 8000.

"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."
