Police in Manchester have released CCTV images after a cash in transit driver was robbed in the city.

On Thursday, July 28, two men were travelling on a motorbike along Bury Old Road, North Manchester before stopping behind a cash in transit van.

The rear pillion passenger got off the motorbike and shouted at the driver to give him the cash box he was carrying whilst brandishing a knife.

The cash in transit driver threw the box, which was empty, at the man who then fled the scene on the motorbike towards the city centre.
