UPDATED: Six arrested in connection with York bank robbery
A FURTHER two men have been arrested in connection with a bank robbery in York, bringing the total number of arrests so far to six.
Officers arrested a 23-year-old man from Merseyside last night and a 26-year-old man from York was arrested this afternoon, in connection with the incident which happened in Acomb last week. Both men remain in police custody.
On Saturday, a 23 and 24-year-old man from York were arrested, while a 22-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman, both from Wallasey in Merseyside, were arrested in Merseyside on Thursday.

The four other people have been released on police bail while the investigation continues.
