Thieves have used a forklift truck to try and prize an ATM from the wall of a shop in Welwyn Garden City.
Although they did not make off with any cash, considerable damage was caused to the shop and the machine.
DC Mark Cotte from Hertfordshire Police said: “We believe a forklift was used in an attempt to force out the machine from the wall.
“This would have created a lot of noise and so I believe anyone in the area at the time could well have seen or heard something that could help us with our investigation."
