Robbers threaten Ewell betting shop worker

A worker at a Surrey betting shop has been threatened by robbers and forced to hand over cash.

Two men targeted the Coral bookmakers in Chessington Road, Ewell, on Thursday evening, telling the victim they had a firearm, though no weapon was seen.

The member of staff was forced to open a till and a safe and hand over an unknown quantity of cash just before 18:00 BST. He was not injured.

The suspects fled the scene on foot, heading in the direction of Horton.
