Police have issued CCTV images of the terrifying moment armed robbers raided a petrol station in Ellesmere Port.
The three thugs, who all have their faces covered, are shown entering the BP Garage on Overpool Road before brandishing a knife at a member of staff while demanding they open the till.
Police have now issued images of the 'horrifying' robbery, which saw the men make off with a large quantity of cash and left the member of staff badly shaken, sometime between 12.20am -12.30am on Thursday, November 7.
No one was injured in the armed robbery which saw one of the men reach into the till and grab handfuls of cash, before the gang fled down Overpool Road, heading in the direction of Whitby.
Two months after the robbery police have released images and descriptions of the armed robbers in the hope of witnesses coming forward and identifying the offenders.
