The offenders smashed the glass of the Co-op shopfront and then crawled inside before forcing the machine out out using explosives.

Gloucestershire Police were called to the scene at 4.45am and say the store will remain closed for some time.

The investigation is in its early stages but officers will, as a matter of course, consider whether there are any links to other cash machine thefts in Gloucestershire in recent weeks.
