Det Insp Rickie Botwright, leading the investigation, said: “We believe this is the location where the robbers would have changed into a different vehicle to leave the area.
“It is likely at this stage they would have removed their face coverings. I would ask anyone who was in this area between 6.30pm and 7pm on Monday evening to contact us as they may have information in relation to this changeover of vehicles.
