Burwell Co-op closed after attempted ram raid
A Burwell petrol station has been closed after an attempted ram raid overnight.
Police were called to the Ness Road Co-op at about 3.53am to reports of an attempted robbery.
The attempted thieves tried to remove a cash machine from the store, but were unsuccessful and fled the scene.
The petrol station, which is expected to re-open tomorrow, has had the front windows smashed in by the offenders and damage to the wall as the gang tried to dislodge the machine.
A member of staff at the store said: "At first they tried to get the ATM through the door. They smashed the glass and put a strap over the machine and then pulled it. But it didn't move. Then they tried to get at it through the wall."
Earlier in the day police towed away a stolen 4x4 used in the attempted robbery.
Anyone with information about the incident should call police on 1010 quoting incident 44 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
