POLICE have released CCTV images of the man suspected of carrying out an armed robbery at a Wisbech bookmaker's on Monday, January 8.

As Ladbrokes, in Church Terrace, closed just before 6.30pm the man entered the shop, pulled out a handgun and demanded money from two cashiers. An unknown amount of money was handed over and the man escaped.
