A bumper, believed to be from the vehicle the criminals were using, was also left at the scene.

Anyone with information or who may have seen the criminals on the forecourt is asked to call the west Kent appeals line on 01622 604100, quoting 28-0124. Alternatively, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers in Kent anonymously on 0800 555111.
