The raid happened at 9.35am at the New Bury Post Office in George Street.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: “We were called at 9.35am to reports of an armed robbery just outside the post office.

“Two men approached a man making a delivery while he was still outside of the shop.

“They took a quantity of cash.”

It’s understood that the offenders escaped in a car.
