Police investigating a robbery at a Port Talbot betting shop have released CCTV images of the suspects.

Three men entered Ladbrokes on Margam Road at about 18:00 GMT on Wednesday.

One of them threatened a member of staff before they made off with a sum of cash.

The two men inside the bookmakers both wore balaclavas and it is possible at least two spoke to each other in a foreign language.

The man who took the money was over 6ft tall with a slight build and was wearing a dark blue coat and gloves. He is described as having a Geordie accent.

His accomplice in the shop was about 5ft 5in tall and was wearing dark clothes and gloves. The third man waited outside.
