Police have issued a video appeal for information after robbers held up a store at knifepoint.

On Wednesday January 3, between 9.30pm and 9.40pm, two men entered a store in High Street, Cranfield.



The offenders threatened a member of staff with a knife and demanded money, and stole a large quantity of cash.

Officers at Bedfordshire Police have been carrying out a number of lines of enquiry into the incident but have so far been unable to identify any offenders.

Officers are now issuing a video appeal featuring the CCTV and a crowbar which was left behind in the robbery.

Detective Constable Aroop Nandre said: “This was a disturbing robbery and we are appealing to anyone with information to come forward.
