Masked men armed with a machete ambushed a security guard in a brazen robbery as he delivered cash to a supermarket in middle of the day. The raid was the third time cash-in-transit robbery in Greater Manchester in the last two weeks.
In the latest incident two masked thieves armed with a machete targeted a van in Shaw1 , Oldham and ran off with several bags of coins. Police were called to reports of an armed robbery at Asda on Greenfield Lane at about 2.10pm yesterday.
Officers say the driver of the van was outside the store when one offender threatened him with a machete and demanded money.
The main robber was white, approximately 5ft 8in tall, slim and in his mid-twenties . He wore a blue tracksuit top and bottoms with a green hood. The second man was white, wore a black jacket and black tracksuit bottoms with a white stripe at the top and a beige baseball cap. Both suspects wore balaclavas to conceal their identity and gloves.

Fortunately the victim wasn t injured but nobody should have to endure such a traumatic experience when they are just trying to do their job.
We have launched an investigation and I would ask that anybody who thinks they may know something that can assist with our investigation to please contact police.
If you recognise the descriptions of the men or think you saw them or the car in the area around the time of the attack, then please get in touch.
Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 1089 of 20 September 2017, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111. Earlier this month robbers escaped with 100,000 from Santander bank in Walkden and 30,000 from the Royal Bank of Scotland in Mather Way, Pendleton, Salford, at the city s shopping centre – police are investigating whether these incidents were linked but neither are thought to be connected to Wednesday s robbery.

Nest is a type of home for a bird
GOOGLE OFFSHOOT Nest has announced a new range of products to help it limp back into the smart home market. The smart home pioneer, has lost its mojo of late with so many competitors in the space and a string of security issues1 and is now playing catch up, with a smart door lock, made with Yale, who already have a range of them, an intruder alarm, of which there are myriad, and a video doorbell, which is essentially another camera with a button on it, and unlikely to be better than the Ring range which has a huge head start. The company which made waves as the first popular smart’ thermostat to reach the masses, went on to buy security firm Dropcam and has moved its focus towards home security, particularly focusing on cameras.
Also on the list was an outdoor version of its IQ facial recognition camera, with HDR recordings as you would find in a top-of-the-range telly (why?) however, unlike offerings from the likes of Netatmo, a subscription is required for facial recognition, and that’s on top of the over-the-odds pricing. A Nest Secure starter kit will be $499 ( 368) and on there are further charges if you want a mobile (SIM) backup system . It consists of “Detect” sensors, “Tag” keyfobs to arm and disarm and “Guard” which is a box that makes a noise.
It seems that Nest believes that it can trade on its name and its “Works with Nest” system, based on Google’s IoT infrastructure, but although the build quality of Nest products is excellent, the premium pricing will not be a lure to those being offered similar specs from other companies. The big selling point is the ability to control everything from a single app, but there are plenty of ways to do that now for far less money, without being locked into a system. The rest of the range has yet to be priced but will go on sale in November in the US .
UK release dates are as yet unknown.
