New appeal in £26m bank robbery

The PSNI are appealing for more information on the Northern Bank robbery:

A fresh appeal has been made by police investigating the £26.5m Northern Bank robbery in Belfast.

CCTV footage has been released of a staff member who was held hostage leaving the bank with a bag of money on 20 December.

Police want anyone who saw the green Umbro bag or the man to contact them.

They also want to hear from the driver of a car which nearly collided with a woman taken hostage during the raid at the Northern Bank head office.

Hugh Constable Hugh Orde has blamed the IRA for the robbery. The IRA has denied involvement.

The PSNI apparently have very little evidence about the bank robbers so why on earth did Hugh Orde place the blame on the IRA?
