Seven accused of bookmaker raids

Seven men from Northamptonshire have been charged with conspiracy to burgle bookmakers across the Midlands and South East.

The men, who are from the Kettering area, were arrested after an 18-month investigation of burglaries at bookmakers.

Two of the men are aged 21, three are 24, one is 27 and another is 28.

They are due before Northampton Magistrates' Court on Friday, a police spokesperson said.

Nine addresses were raided by police who seized three vehicles and a considerable amount of property.
