THREE TEENAGERS PLAYING Pokémon Go were the victims of an armed robbery in a London park.

The teenagers, aged 15, 16 and 18 were playing at Whittington Park when they were approached by three men.

One of the men pointed a handgun towards the victims and demanded they hand over their phones. The three victims handed them over and left the scene.

Around 30 minutes earlier, a 24-year-old was also threatened at gunpoint by three men with their faces covered.
