The masked man entered the pub on Osbourne Rd, armed with a black handgun, and demanded money from the employee.

The worker then moved to the cash room of the pub where the masked man took the worker's wallet and keys, before stealing the man's Nissan coupe registered as 619ZMY.

Thankfully the worker was uninjured.

The robber then drove off in the vehicle, but did not steal cash from the pub.

The car is yet to be found and police are unsure in which location it was taken.

Anyone who sees the car or recognises the man from footage should contact police.
