A JCB digger has ramraided a Co-op store in Bishopthorpe, York and stolen the cashpoint machine.

The ATM was stolen from the front of the shop at around 3.05am this morning.

The cashpoint was then placed into a white Ford Transit van, which was driven away from the scene alongside a black Audi Q3 towards Acaster Malbis.

The JCB digger, which is believed to have been stolen, was abandoned near the Co-op store.

The surrounding road has been cordoned off due to a water leak caused by damage to a pipe from the ramraid.

North Yorkshire Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward information about "any recent suspicious activity in the Bishopthorpe area of York".

  • Anyone with information is urged to call North Yorkshire Police on 101
