Ram-raiders using a JCB digger and a forklift truck have reduced a Cambridgeshire petrol station building to rubble in a bid to steal a cash machine.

The would-be thieves - four men dressed in black - struck at the service station in East Delph, Whittlesey at 02:55 on Tuesday September 29.

Cambridgeshire Police said the cash machine was left at the scene and it was not clear whether cash or anything else was stolen. Fire crews closed the petrol station on safety grounds.

It is believed that two other trucks were also used in the raid.

A red car - possibly an Audi - was seen leaving in the direction of the Dog In A Doublet pub and Thorney, Cambridgeshire Police said.
