Cambridgeshire Police have released footage of an armed robbery in Cambridge back in August, as officers continue to investigate the incident.

The robbery happened at the William Hill bookmaker's in Mill Road, Cambridge, at 9pm on Friday 24th August.

A man went into the shop, threatened one of the staff with a hammer, then got away with cash.

Police believe the man then turned right towards Mill Road bridge, and officers are particularly keen to locate the hammer and white hat worn by the robber.

The Association of British Bookmakers has offered a reward of up to £10,000 for information that leads to conviction.

Detective Constable Dave Hall, who is investigating, said: "I hope this footage will prompt someone to come forward with the information we need.  

Anyone with any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, should contact police."

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Hall, at Parkside Police Station, on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
