Armed police swooped on a gang of armed robbers after shots during a terrifying pub raid.

Robbers shocked staff and customers when they burst into the Hartshead Inn on Mossley Road, Ashton-under-Lyne, last night.

They fired two shots during the raid and made off with around £200 in coins.

The suspects totaling four, were arrested when police caught up with them at the village hotel.

It comes as shocking news to Tameside as the use of guns in this raid frightens the public.

Well after weeks of election drama, things are finally returning to normal. Or are they? Most people know that we are currently in a hung parliament but in Tameside it looks like Labour still hold the title!

Labour managed to hang on to their existing seats as well as taking over an Independent in the town of Mossley as well as taking a Conservative seat. This is now the new council: New council make up LAB 46(+2) CON 2(-1) LIB DEM 0(-) OTHER  2 (-1) 

So it looks like David Cameron is not at all popular in Tameside.
