Three men stole money and cigarettes from a shop in Bury.

A shop assistant and customer saw the men and ran to the back office at around 9.50pm on November 30.
The trio took the till, cigarettes and a set of keys before they drove off in a black car.
The staff member and customer were not hurt.
One is described as being white, 5ft 9in tall, of slim build and spoke with a local accent. He wore a black hooded top with the hood pulled tight around the face, black pants and trainers.
