Wirral detectives are appealing for information following an armed robbery in Birkenhead this morning, Saturday 28 September.

At 11.20am, officers were called to Asda on Stanley Road to reports of two men entering the premises, one of whom was reportedly in possession of a machete, and stole cash from within.

The offenders are believed to have left on a motorbike and travelled towards Birkenhead town centre. No staff were injured, although they were understandably shaken.

CCTV, witness and forensic enquiries continue.

Detective Inspector Paul Gillies said: “This robbery will have been a huge shock to all staff who witnessed it and were are determined to find those responsible as soon as possible and take them off the streets. Did you see the incident or a motorbike making off? Your info, CCTV or dashcam footage could be vital.

“Tell us what you know and we’ll do the rest. We will be supporting those staff who experienced this incident and will work alongside the business to ensure this despicable incident is fully investigated.”

Anyone with information can contact @MerPolCC or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 with reference 19100560299.
