A receptionist was threatened with a Taser gun when masked robbers raided a dental practice.

Three men wearing masks and balaclavas walked into the surgery on Beverley Road, near the junction with College Street, at around 6.15pm yesterday and demanded the key for the cash box.

They escaped with cash and fled down a track near Vane Street park onto Freehold Street. One is thought to have been riding a white ‘chopper’ style bike.

Anyone with information should call Humberside Police on 101.
