Detectives are appealing for information leading to four gamblers who reacted rather badly after losing their money in betting shops in Brent.
The ‘sore losers’ are suspected of carrying out criminal acts when they realised they were not on a winning streak.
A gambling machine and a door were criminally damaged after two punters saw red, while a stool was hurled at staff in another incident.
In a fourth incident workers were subjected to a tirade of racist abuse by an irate loser.
Anyone with information should call Brent Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
