Police investigating an armed robbery in Leyland have arrested two men this morning.
Detectives launched an investigation after a robbery at around 9.45am on May 23 at the Lloyds TSB bank on Hough Lane in Leyland.
Two masked men wearing dark clothing got out of a car brandishing what appeared to be a handgun and a sledgehammer and threatened a G4S security guard making a delivery to the bank.
They then went inside the bank and demanded money.
A 27-year-old man and 33-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of robbery at addresses in Leigh, Greater Manchester.
They have been taken to a police station in Lancashire where they will be interviewed.
