STAFF were threatened with a baseball bat and crowbar during an armed robbery at a Wirral post office.

At around 12.40pm on Tuesday, two men entered the Post Office on Dacre Hill in Rock Ferry threatened staff and stole cash.

No staff members were injured but were left extremely shaken.

The men were in dark clothing, with hoods up and facial coverings, wearing gloves.

CCTV, forensic and witness enquiries are ongoing and detectives want to hear from anyone with information.

Detective chief inspector Paul Nilsen said: "All key workers are heroes who are putting themselves at risk to keep the rest of the communities going in this difficult time.

"To be threatened in such a distressing way is absolutely disgusting, and we are absolutely determined to do all in our power to find those cowards who targeted them, and put them before the courts.

"Tell us what you know, and if you live nearby or were passing and saw or heard anything.

"We'll act on all information provided, and take those involved off your streets."
