TWO members of a armed gang which stole more than £300,000 during a terrifying raid on a Huddersfield bank have been jailed.

Carl Hargin, 24, who brandished a crowbar, and getaway driver Patrick McDonagh, 28, were both arrested after police pursued their van across the Pennines to Manchester, following the robbery at the HSBC on Westbourne Road in June.

The duo were caught after a chase around a multi-storey car park and shopping complex, but Bradford Crown Court heard today that two other suspects escaped and were thought to have fled back to Spain.

Both men come from Manchester. Hargin was jailed for eight years and McDonagh seven.
