Police investigations are continuing after an armed robbery at a post office in west Leeds.

A cash in transit driver was attacked by an attacker wielding a hammer and a metal bar as he stopped at the post office in Farsley around 2.10pm on Wednesday.

He escaped unharmed but a cash box was stolen.

It is not known how many attackers were involved but they fled in what is thought to have been a silver Ford Fiesta which still has not been found. No-one has yet been arrested in connection with the incident.

Leeds has been identified as a child sexual exploitation hotspot, with vulnerable young people often with troubled backgrounds most at risk from being groomed online or targeted by gangs.
