Building destroyed in ATM ram raid

Raiders have ripped a cash machine from the wall of a shop in Sutton Bridge in Lincolnshire.

A JCB truck was used to take the ATM from the Co-Op store in the early hours of this morning. It's since been found with the money still inside it near Peterborough.

Police want to trace a black Audi and a green Mitsubishi pick up which they believe were used in the raid.

Due to the help of the public and the concerted joint efforts between Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire police we have stopped the offenders getting away with any money.

The damage they cause is not to be underestimated and we will continue to investigate all of these offences to identify the suspects. It’s crucial to get the early calls from witnesses and as much detail as possible, so I appeal to anyone who thinks they saw anything suspicious activity or vehicles in area last night to get in touch.
