Police are appealing for witnesses following a robbery from a Betfred bookmakers in Peterborough

At about 9.45pm on Tuesday, two men arrived at the shop, in Bretton Court, in a silver Vauxhall Vectra. One of them restrained a member of the public, while the other man jumped over the counter brandishing a weapon and forced two members of staff into the back office.

They threatened the staff members and demanded the safe was opened.The safe was not opened and the offenders made off with a small sum of cash from the till, in what is believed to have been a dark Toyota Celica, with tinted windows and a rear spoiler.

"This was a calculated attempt to make off with large sums of money, which has failed, but left a member of the public and staff severely shaken. "I urge anyone with information to come forward.”

– Detective Inspector Rich Sinclair
