An investigation is underway after two masked raiders robbed a Co-op store in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

The pair - who were wearing balaclavas - entered the shop on St Winifred's Avenue at around 9:30pm on Thursday night. They threatened staff with a knife, before stealing more than £180 from the till and fleeing in the direction of a nearby hospital.

One of the suspects is described as being around 5ft 3in tall, and of stocky build. The other is approximately 5ft 8in and was wearing a grey hooded top.
