Workman have been busy building a new brick wall at the site after extensive damage was caused on Friday December 15.

The ram raid forced the temporary closure of the site which includes an M&S food outlet.

Staff who had been temporarily working at other garages owned by the same company are now back behind their original tills.

It was the third robbery in Littleport this month. Costcutter was hit by ram-raiders on December 9 before burglars targeted the Co-op store in Wisbech Road two days later.

Costcutter in Main Street was first to be hit, with three people stealing a cash machine after smashing into it in a car; the shop was left with smashed windows and doors and a bollard outside was also knocked over.
