Four arrested following Carlisle bank robbery

FOUR men from Liverpool have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at the Bank of Scotland at Rosehill, Carlisle, this week.

The balaclava-clad robber, who was armed with a hammer, made off with bags of cash after he tackled security guards as they made a delivery.

The four men in custody – aged 21, 22, 32 and 39 – were arrested on suspicion of robbery and are being questioned by police.
Officers have not said how much was stolen.

They have recovered three stolen vehicles, which may have been used in the robbery in Wavell Drive at 7.30pm on Monday.

They want to hear from anyone who saw a large white Transit van in Rosehill Industrial Estate in the last two weeks.

And from anyone who saw a silver Audi A5 and a red Audi A4 together in the city since bank holiday Monday.

Contact Cumbria Police on 0845 33 00 247.

Do decorative lights in town centres make a difference to the way you feel about Christmas?

Certainly. I don't feel the season has started until after the big switch-on

These days I don't think they're worth the expense

Love them - but they shouldn't be switched on until December
