Gun is used in Stroud betting shop robbery

Police are searching for a man following an armed robbery at a betting shop in Gloucestershire.

Officers were called to Bet Fred in High Street, Stroud, on Thursday evening following reports of the attack.

A Gloucestershire Police spokesman said a member of staff was threatened with a gun before having his hands tied.

"Police would particularly like to speak to a man and woman who saw the offender run off," he said.

It is believed the offender took between £300 and £500 in cash from the till.
