FOUR men have been arrested by police investigating an armed robbery at an estate agents in Bury.
They were all questioned on suspicion of robbery and released on bail until September 30.
It relates to a robbery at Pearson Ferrier estate agents, in Walmersley Road, at 4.35pm on Wednesday, July 31.
Two men burst into the office, one with a spanner or wrench and the other with a silver handgun.
