CCTV has been released after men armed with a machete snatched cash from Asda in Birkenhead.

Emergency services were called to Asda on Stanley Road at 11.20am on Saturday, September 28 following reports that two men armed with a machete snatched cash from the store.

The two men then left on a motorbike, driving towards Birkenhead town centre.

No staff were injured but they were left shaken.

A 35-year-old man from Prenton was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery.

He was questioned by detectives but has since been released under investigation.

Officers have now released CCTV stills of two men they want to identify in connection with the shocking incident.

D/Sgt Clint Wilkinson said: “Our investigation continues and we still want to hear from any witnesses or anyone who saw the bike or person wearing the distinctive helmet pictured around the time of the offence, or has seen either since.

"Your information or footage could be the key to identifying those responsible.

“We understand the quality of the picture of the bike is not great, however it is described as having yellow wheels, and as such, again looks quiet distinctive.

"Likewise, the helmet pictured would be recognisable to anyone who knows the owner.

"We need to find both, and anyone who knows who was involved or is storing any items.”

Anyone with information who has yet to come forward is asked to contact Merseyside Police via social media @MerPolCC or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference number 19100560299.
