CCTV images of eight people have been released after a large amount of cash was stolen from a shop in Scraptoft.

The group went into the shop, on Main Street, at around 11am on February 13. 

They asked staff questions, but when they left it was discovered that a large amount of money had been taken from a room above the shop and behind the counter.

Pc Jo Kearns said: “We believe the group of people were asking questions in order to distract the staff member while one of them made their way to the upstairs of the property. Following this it was found a large amount of money had been taken from upstairs as well as from near the counter. 

“An investigation is ongoing and we believe the people pictured can help us with our enquiries. If you are pictured, or recognise anyone who is pictured, we urge you to get in touch. Anyone who has any information in relation to the incident should also make contact.”

If you have any information call police on 101 quoting incident 19000078610.
