Officers were called at 2.10am after reports that a red Land Rover Defender was repeatedly reversed into the front of the High Street store – before the offenders began to tie chains around the ATM machine.

However they were disturbed and made off in another vehicle, thought to be a grey Audi. Nothing was taken from the store.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
