A man has pleaded guilty to carrying out an armed robbery at a Norfolk betting shop.

Dion Carr, 30, of no fixed address, admitted robbing the betting shop in The Thoroughfare, in Harleston armed with a knife before escaping with a quantity of cash on June 9 last year.

Carr, who was wearing a white T-shirt appeared via video link from Norwich prison and as well as pleading guilty to the robbery he also admitted having a bladed article on the same date.

Martin Ivory, prosecuting, said that a knife had been used in the course of the robbery, which was on a small betting shop business which had since closed.

Judge Anthony Bate adjourned sentence until March 20 and ordered pre-sentence reports including a risk assessment on danger Carr posed.

Judge Bate remanded Carr in custody.
