WATCH: Ram raiders caught on camera as they smash through store front

Dramatic footage of a ram raid attack on a shop in Kent has been caught on camera.

The raiders smashed their way into a co-op in Rochester using what is thought to be a stolen vehicle, leaving a trail of destruction behind them.

The would-be thieves gave a steady nudge to shunt a parked car - followed by a high speed crash into the glass doors of the co-op on Delce Road in Rochester.

They left a scene of destruction behind them following the early hours attack on Thursday.

It was all filmed by the CCTV cameras of the builders merchants next door.

Unable to move the cash machine the raiders had been after - they are thought to have left the store without any money - armfuls of cigarettes believed to be their only haul.

Police are appealing for information

No arrests have been made.
