Raiders attempt to steal ATM from supermarket

Raiders have tried to steal a cashpoint from a supermarket in Bishop's Stortford.

A gang of men drove a white van into the car park of Waitrose on Northgate End just before 4am on Friday 11th April and tried to pull the cashpoint away using a chain attached to the ATM and their van.

However the daring attempt failed and just resulted in the van’s bumper being ripped off.

Three offenders were thought to be involved. The vehicle is described as a white new shape Ford transit panel van.

“I would like to speak to anyone who has any information about this incident, particularly if they saw the men or the van acting suspiciously in the area at the time.”

Strong wind warning issued for North Norfolk

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for the risk of strong winds extending as far south at the North Norfolk coast. The alert says it could lead to some disruption to travel and difficult driving conditions.

"Southwesterly winds will increase this morning with gales developing across north Wales, parts of northern England, the north Midlands and eastern England. Gusts of 50-60 mph are likely for a time, perhaps reaching 65 mph on exposed coasts of Lancashire and north Wales.

Winds should ease from the west later this afternoon."


The weather warning is in force from 9am until 5pm on Sunday 12 April 2015

The Met Office says there is some uncertainty about the southward extent of the strongest winds.

The Chief Forecaster's assessment is: "A small depression is expected to run quickly east northeast today, crossing northern England early this afternoon. A swathe of southwesterly gales is likely to the south of the depression centre, but these should ease later this afternoon as the system moves away over the North Sea."
