Hampshire Constabulary are investigating a 'ram raid' style break-in at the Co-op store on Ringwood Road, Bransgore.
A stolen Land Rover Defender was driven into the front of the store and an attempt made to remove the cash machine inside by a group of men. This attempt was unsuccessful and nothing was taken from the store. No-one was hurt during the incident.
The men left the scene in a silver Honda Accord. This was later found abandoned in Brook.
Detectives are following lines of enquiry today and reviewing CCTV footage. At the current time the incident is not being linked to any other reports recently received by Police.
Anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area or either vehicle should call 101 quoting 44150112691
