CCTV has been released after men armed with a firearm and machete attempted to rob a betting shop - but left empty handed.

Police would like to speak to two men in connection with a robbery attempt at Coral betting shop in Privett Road, Gosport.

During the incident, which took place between 6.30pm and 7.15pm on Sunday, June 6, two men entered the store and made threats towards a member of staff.

The men were said to be carrying weapons, described as a machete and a firearm.

The member of staff refused to give over any money and the two men left empty handed.

They then got into a black vehicle and drove off down Privett Road.
