PSNI detectives are investigating a kidnap and robbery in Belfast today after a department store worker was targeted.

It is understood that a number of masked men entered a house in the Andersonstown Road area of west Belfast in the early hours of this morning, and forced a woman to go to her place of work, a department store in the Park Centre shopping complex.

She was told to remove cash from the premises while her husband and daughter were held at home by the gang.

The victims were left badly shaken, but physically uninjured.
