Armed bank robbers target high street bank

Police are hunting two armed robbers after they targeted a high street bank in broad daylight.

The men, who were brandishing weapons and dressed in blue overalls, entered the Lloyds TSB branch on High Street in Gorseinon, Swansea, just after 10am on Tuesday morning.

Armed police along with a dog unit and police helicopter were deployed to the town centre after the two suspects fled the scene in a car.
