Police are appealing for information after an armed robbery at a Luton bookmakers.

Two men threatened staff before demanding they hand over cash from the till at Coral, in Tavistock Street, at around 9.30pm on Wednesday (4 November).

The offenders then made off.

One of the men was black and was wearing dark clothing. The other was white and wearing a grey tracksuit.

Detective Constable David Elias said: “This was a terrifying experience for the staff and I would urge anyone with information as to who is responsible to call police.

“The offenders may have been waiting around the premises for some time before the robbery so I would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious to come forward.”

Anyone with any information should call DC Elias on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
