Qld police hunt for two armed robbers

A gunman and his accomplice are on the run after robbing a far north Queensland bar.

The pair entered the gaming lounge of the Mackay business just after 9pm on Tuesday and one handed a note to a staff member demanding cash while revealing he was carrying a gun in a bag.

The robbers made off with a sum of money in a dark-coloured sedan and police are appealing for witnesses.
