Two men in their 20s have been arrested after cheques worth €1.1m were taken during an armed robbery in Dublin.

A man was about to lodge a quantity of documents and cheques at a bank night safe on Main Street, Tallaght, shortly before midnight, when he was approached by two men.

One was armed with what appeared to be a firearm and the other carried a hammer.

They forced the victim to hand over the document bag and fled.

Gardaí carried out a search of the area.

Two men were arrested and the bag and contents were recovered.
