Police have appealed for witnesses after an armed robbery at a bookmakers in Mirfield.

Three men, with hoods up and black face coverings, entered the bookmakers on Huddersfield Road at about 9.40pm yesterday evening (Monday February 23).

Anyone with information is asked to call Kirklees CID on 101.”
