Police are at the scene of another armed robbery in Oxford.

Two robbers this morning targeted the Stan James betting shop in Roundway, Headington and stole cash, police have said.

Thames Valley Police spokeswoman Rhianne Pope said the force was called to the incident at about 11.30am.

The same bookmakers was raided by thieves armed with a handgun and a hammer in January.

The Oxford Mail reported last month there were 17 business robberies in the city between April 1 last year and January 31 - up 89 per cent on the nine in the same period during the previous year.
