TWO men have been arrested on suspicion of carrying out an armed robbery at a Bolton bookmaker's shop.

Ladbrokes in St Andrew's Square was raided at around 8.25pm last Wednesday.

Robbers wearing masks and carrying hammers got away with an amount of cash.

One of the men arrested was charged and remanded in custody. The other was out of prison on licence and was recalled to prison.
