Witness appeal after armed robbery

Police in Essex are appealing for witnesses to an armed robbery in Calcutta Road, Tilbury, yesterday evening. Two men entered the Ladbrokes betting shop, one armed with a knife, and threatened an employee. One man jumped over the counter and stole money from the till.

They both then made off on foot in the direction of Ottawa Road. The suspects were both wearing their hoods up and scarfs covering their faces.
