Police have released images of two men they want to speak to in connection with an incident at a cash machine outside the Co-op store, Stocks Hill, Moulton, Northamptonshire.
A member of the public attempted to use the cash machine, however, after requesting money the machine appeared to shut down, the card was not returned and no money was dispensed.

Anyone with any information can call Northamptonshire Police on 101. Alternatively, they can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Dog walkers in Daventry who don't clean up after their pets will soon face tougher penalties.
From the 1st December anyone caught without a poop bag or the means to clean up risk a £100 fine or potential prosecution from the council.
"This order will give us greater powers to take effective action against the minority of dog owners who do not pick up after their pets.
"Once introduced in December, our priorities will be to raise awareness of the new powers among local communities and to educate dog walkers about the issues. We will be advising them to make sure they have extra poop bags with them at all times to ensure they have the means to pick up, regardless of how long they've been out and about with their pet."
