HOODED thieves broke into a Bromsgrove pub just before dawn and scarpered with money from gaming machines.

Police are appealing for witnesses after cash was stolen from The Court Leet Hungry Horse pub on Worcester Road.

The incident happened at around 6am on Tuesday, November 19.

PC Dan Icke said: “We believe the individuals, who were wearing hoods, forced entry into the pub and removed cash from the gaming machines before leaving the scene.

“The incident happened on a busy main road and traffic would have started to increase around this time so I would appeal to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious to contact us.”

Anyone with information can call West Mercia Police on 101, quoting incident number 0072s of 19 November 2019, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
