THREE raiders with a handgun and a machete failed in a bid to rob a bank.
The men, wearing black balaclavas and hooded tops, walked into the HSBC branch in Bradford Road, Cleckheaton, at about 1.20pm yesterday.
They threatened an engineer who was working on a cash machine, but they fled empty-handed after the alarm was raised.
The raiders left in a black Honda Civic with a 56 number plate. A getaway driver was at the wheel.
