Gaming machines in pubs are being targeted by thieves.

Two pubs in north Norfolk have had cash stolen from the games by men using a duplicate key.

A police spokesman said it was not known how much had been taken, adding: 'They were opening it and using a beanie hat to take the money out so they were muffling the sound of the cash.'

The men tend to huddle around the machine and try to block the view of staff. Pubs in the area are being told to be on the look out for unfamiliar customers, particularly a group of men, who are acting suspiciously.
