Police have released an image of a man they want to speak to following a series of robberies at bookmakers across east London.

Ben Mark Hilton, 33, is being sought in connection with four robberies in October and November at venues in Romford and Dagenham.

On each occasion, staff were threatened and forced to hand over money. The robber intimated he may be in possession of a weapon although none was seen and no one has been hurt.

Anyone who has information about Hilton’s whereabouts, or that could assist the investigation is asked to contact police on 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD 2227/10Nov.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
