A single member of staff opened the bank at 7.30. Two masked men, one pushing a baby stroller, burst in and handcuffed her in a side room.

They then took thousands of francs from the vault before fleeing on foot.

Zurich police say they were wearing a woolen ski hat and bright trousers. The baby stroller may have had a doll in it. They’re aged between 35 and 40 years old and about 180cm tall.

The bank worker is unhurt.
