Mac and Tosh laptops, worth £500,000, have been snatched by armed robbers from Inmac's warehouse in Runcorn, Cheshire.

The four masked robbers struck at 5.15am on Tuesday 3 April. They rounded up security staff, tied them up and locked them in the toilets.

Three employees were seriously injured and sent to hospital following the raid.

The armed thieves left a trail of soil and green chilli peppers from their white van as they fled the premises. But the clue may not be that significant; Runcorn is close to Liverpool docks where fruit and veg are regularly unloaded.

Inmac is a division of MicroWarehouse. ®
