MASKED men thought to be carrying knives and a sledgehammer tried to raid a building society.
The three men attempted the robbery at the Yorkshire Building Society in Lindley at 11.57 on Friday morning.
One of the men was carrying a sledgehammer and tried to break through the locks on the doors to the back of the branch office at Acre Street, near the Bay Horse roundabout.
Staff alerted the police and after failed attempts to break through the doors, the men left without stealing any money.
They jumped into a blue car outside the branch and a fourth man waiting in the vehicle drove off down New Hey Road, towards Marsh.

On Saturday a 19-year-old had his wallet and Nokia phone stolen by five boys.
Kevin Wilson was walking down Bow Street in Paddock at 3.40pm when one of the teenagers shouted over to him and asked for a cigarette.
As they got closer to the teenager they grabbed his bag out of his hand and searched his pockets.
As he tried to run away they pulled at his T-shirt causing it to rip.
One of the males is described as white, fat and about 5ft 9ins tall.
A second male was said to be wearing black trainers with distinctive yellow laces.
