Men sought over bookmakers robbery in Port Glasgow

Police are attempting to trace two men following an armed robbery at a bookmakers in Port Glasgow, Inverclyde.

The men, who wore dark clothing, entered Ladbrokes in the town's Dubbs Road, at about 21:00 on Thursday.

One of the men produced a knife and demanded cash before both made off with a three-figure sum of money towards the nearby cycle track at Crosshill Palace.

No-one was injured during the raid but staff and customers were left shaken. Police have appealed for witnesses.

Det Sgt Gordon Smith, of Police Scotland, said: "Our inquiries are still at quite an early stage. We are analysing CCTV and conducting interviews.

"I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of the bookmakers at the time of incident to contact police with any relevant information."
