TWO would-be robbers wore Ronald Reagan masks during a botched armed raid on a West Yorkshire bank.

Detectives have released CCTV images of the men pair entering the Yorkshire Bank in Queensbury, Bradford.

They were armed with a crow bar and a sledge hammer when they walked into the bank on High Street just after 10am on March 8.

A panic alarm was activated and the men fled empty handed.

Police, who later recovered a stolen black BMW dumped on Chapel Lane, believe the men escaped in a second car.

Det Insp Ian Bryar said: “It is vitally important that we hear from anyone who witnessed this incident take place and has not already come forward. Even the smallest piece of information may help to identify the culprits.”
