Police are appealing for witnesses following an armed robbery at a bookmakers in Huddersfield Road, Mirfield, on Monday evening.

At around 9.40pm, three men have entered the bookmakers, one armed with what is believed to be a handgun and the other two with hammers. The men have removed cash from the till and left via the front door.

The men were all wearing grey hooded tops with the hoods up and black face coverings.

Detective Constable Andy Clayton, of Kirklees CID, said: “We are interested in hearing from anyone who was in the area around the time of this offence who believes they may have seen the men preparing to enter the bookmakers or making off afterwards, potentially getting in to a vehicle. Anyone with information is asked to call Kirklees CID on 101.”
