LADBROKES COUNSELLING FOR WORKER
THE sole bookies worker who was behind the counter during Friday's bungled armed robbery attempt will receive counselling, Ladbrokes has confirmed.
The shop on Crownhill Road was due to reopen this morning.
It was surrounded by police tape on Friday evening as Scenes of Crime officers and forensics experts worked inside the building late into the night.
The West Park store remained closed over the weekend.

Employees were present on Saturday to help police with their investigations.
Two staff members accompanied police to the shop.
Ciaran O'Brien, director of public affairs at Ladbrokes said: "We do provide counselling and specialist support for staff and will be doing so on this instance.
"We are aware of the serious incident in Plymouth and we are providing the police with all possible assistance in their investigation and providing staff with support.
"It would not be appropriate to comment further at this stage."
