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.
