Thames Valley Police are appealling for witnesses following the robbery at a Coral bookmakers store at around 6.45pm on Friday, February 2.

Two robbers entered the store with their faces covered armed with knives. One of them stood by the door while the other demanded money from a member of staff.

The member of staff handed cash over then the offenders fled the store on foot.
