A shotgun was fired during a robbery at a bookmakers in Ilkeston last night. Two masked offenders burst into Coral Bookmakers, in Nottingham Road, at about 9:30pm.
They threatened members of staff with the firearm, before pulling the trigger. No one was injured and the pair fled empty-handed.
They were white, in their 20s and were wearing dark clothing.
The shop remains taped off this morning.
