Police are hunting two women who carried out an armed robbery on a post office in Boston Spa near Wetherby.
It happened at around 9.30am this morning at the building on High Street in the village.

A male member of staff has suffered what appear to be minor injuries and has been taken to hospital.
"We believe that two vehicles were used in this incident and in addition to the two female suspects who have entered the post office there may also have been a driver involved. One of the vehicles, a Nissan Juke, has been located burnt out in Beeches End. The other vehicle involved is believed to be a white Mercedes."
