Two men robbed a newsagent shop in Leeds armed with a handgun.

The suspects raided Gateways Newsagents, in Middleton Park Road, with one of them threatening the staff with the gun before stealing cash from the till.

Officers investigating the incident, that took place at 8 pm on 8 November last year, have now released CCTV images of two men they want to identify.

“While both suspects have their faces covered, it is hoped someone may recognise them from their clothing and build,” West Yorkshire Police said.

Anyone who thinks they know them or who has any information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact DC 990 Beaumont at Leeds District CID via 101 quoting crime reference 13210564457 or online. Information can be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
