Cleveland Police have released CCTV footage of a man they believe is responsible for an armed robbery at a book-makers on Teesside.
The incident happened at around 9.30pm on Wednesday, just before the shop on Cargo Fleet Lane in Middlesbrough was about to close.
Two members of staff say the man threatened them with a hand-gun and escaped with nearly £300 pounds from the safe.
