It happened just after 4am on Saturday 18th August in Fleet Street.

The building was previously a HSBC and is now a kitchen and furniture shop.

The offenders then ran away and escaped in a dark-coloured Audi.

It is not yet known if any money was stolen.

The tractor was left at the scene alongside a green Land Rover Defender, which had been stolen from Whitcombe Road in Beaminster.

One person who was in the flat above the shop managed to escape uninjured.
