An ATM cash delivery has been targeted by robbers.

A security guard, thought to be from G4Securicor, based in Mallusk, has been hit on the head during the robbery in Newry, Co Down.

It happened just after 7.15am as the guard carried cash in a protected box from the van to the cash machine - which is located at a busy petrol station on the Belfast Road - and close to the local PSNI station.
