The first took place at a bank on Newtownards Road at around 1.30pm and the second in which a shot was fired happened at a building society on the Cregagh Road at around 2pm.

Local Councillor Maíre Hendron said: “To have two armed robberies take place in an area in one afternoon is very worrying. It is deeply disturbing that a shot was fired in one of these incidents. The total disregard shown for the safety of staff and others is despicable.
