SDLP Down District Councillor Eamonn O’Neill has condemned the perpetrators of an armed robbery of a branch of Ulster Bank in Castlewellan.

The robbers, who held up the branch at gunpoint, got away with an amount of money, some of which was still in a box which they abandoned a short distance away. Police are at the scene.

Mr O’Neill said: “I wish to utterly condemn this attack, which was terrifying for all involved. The use of weapons is particularly worrying and will have made for an intensely frightening experience for any witnesses.”

He added, “This was a vicious and reprehensible act, especially given the crisis that Ulster Bank customers have been facing. I urge anyone with information to come forward to police urgently, or to contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
