Money was stolen during an early morning shop raid in Belfast.

Two men, one carrying a firearm, took the cash from the store in Jasmine End in Dunmurry.

The robbery happened just after 6.25am yesterday.

Detective Inspector Kerry Brennan said: "It was reported that two men entered a shop in the area with one man armed with a suspected firearm. They made off with a sum of money during the incident and left the scene in a red Renault Megane.

"The female staff member was not injured during the incident, but left badly shaken. The car was later found burnt out at the Beechmount Grove area of Belfast at around 6.45am."
