Detective Constable Vicky Foley, of Kirklees CID, said: “Enquiries are ongoing in relation to this series of robberies and we are offering crime prevention support to the owners of the premises.

“We do believe the shop has been targeted by the same suspects, one of whom was wearing a khaki coloured coat with the hood pulled up.

“Clearly their behaviour in repeatedly targeting the same shop is brazen in the extreme and I would asked anyone who has information about these men or who may recognise the description of any of the males to contact Kirklees CID on 101 referencing crime number 13190123333 on 101 or online via 101Livechat.

“Information can also be given in complete anonymity to the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.”
