Two men armed with an axe and a baseball bat robbed a Post Office delivery driver and escaped with a significant amount of cash contained inside a secure box.
The robbery happened today at about midday at the Post Office in Cross Street, Moulton, Northampton.
A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said: “Two armed men approached a delivery driver on Cross Street and demanded money.
“Cross Street was closed briefly, but has since reopened.
