-Medium build 

-Wearing a light grey hooded top with the hood up and pulled tightly around his face; blue jeans and dark green trench coat 

-He had a strong accent-possibly Irish. 

 

DC Danielle Daltrey who is investigating said:

“This was a busy day for the shop as it was Grand National Day. Although the man left empty handed, this is a serious incident which resulted in staff being left scared and shaken. 

“We’d like to hear from anyone who was in Ladbrokes around this time, or who saw a man cycling away from the shop.” 

She added: “If you do recognise the man in the CCTV images please contact us.”
