Detective Sergeant Stephen Hartley said: “Thankfully no one was physically injured during the incident but understandably staff were shaken up by the ordeal. We’re wanting to identify two men who may be able to assist with our enquiries who were dressed in high-vis orange short sleeve jackets.

“No arrests have been made and extensive work is being done by investigators who are trawling CCTV and speaking to witnesses.”
