A cash machine was stolen from the Co-op in Willingham overnight after a group of men drove a 4x4 into the store on High Street.

Police were called at 1.40am today (Tuesday July 3) with reports of the break-in.

It was reported that a silver 4x4 was driven into the store and a group of men removed the cash machine.

The offenders made off in a smaller dark car with the ATM.

Members of the Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue Service attended the scene due to reports of the smell of gas coming from inside the store.

Almost a year ago, on July 9 2017, ram raiders smashed their way into the same Co-op - but that time they left empty handed.
