Police in Leeds are appealing for information following an armed robbery at The Bike Shop in Crossgates, Leeds. The store was robbed during the late afternoon on Monday. Cash from the till and a £9,000 Rolex watch were taken.

Three masked men entered the store at 4.35pm and demanded personal property. The men also threatened staff in the workshop area, say police. The robbers fled the scene in a car.
