Suffolk police are investigating after a ram raid at a shop in Suffolk in the early hours of this morning ( Sunday 14th October).
A Telehandler was used to smash into Martin McColl newsagents on Hall Street in Long Melford near Sudbury. The front of the shop has been partly destroyed.
Police say five men wearing dark clothing with their faces covered removed the cash machine using the Telehandler.
It was then placed onto a Black Nissan Navara which then left towards Sudbury, followed by a black Audi saloon.
Police are appealing for any witnesses to contact them on 101
"My reaction is the same as anyone else in the village, absolute shock and horror that it's happened again, only a year since the Co-op was ram raided, speaking to people this morning, some residents witnessed it happening last night and it was all over in 3 minutes, the police had no chance to respond whatsoever."
It's the second time Long Melford's been targeted. In November 2017 the Co-op in the village was damaged after a ram raid.
It was one of a number of ram raids at Co-op shops across Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex, prompting the East of England Co-op to lodge a planning application in September to install steel bollards outside its stores Read more
