A robber’s been jailed for six years for a knifepoint robbery at a bookies in Clacton.
Darren Starkey from Bishops Stortford grabbed a staff member at Jennings Racing on Pier Avenue in May and threatened him with a knife.
He then stole a four figure sum of cash from the till and ran off.
Starkey was later arrested by Hertfordshire Police in connection with a robbery at Corals in Bishop’s Stortford a few days later.
He was then charged in connection with both crimes which he admitted in court.
