A skimming device used to steal bank account details was found at a cash point at an Ipswich supermarket, police have said.

Officers removed the device at an East of England Co-op store in Foxhall Road after a member of the public alerted staff at the supermarket to the scam.

Police were called at around 12pm yesterday and seized the skimming device, a Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said.

The incident has prompted officers to warn people to remain “vigilant” when using cash machines.

The force is advising people to take the following measures to protect against ATM fraud:

Where possible, consider using ATMs inside banks rather than on the street.

Be aware of who is around you when withdrawing cash.

Inspect the ATM for any devices before inserting your card.

Cover the keypad when entering your pin.

If you suspect anything contact the police and the bank immediately.

Do not attempt to remove the device.

Report any suspected misuse to your card issuer immediately.

Anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious behaviour around the ATM or has information relating to this crime is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Drivers are being urged to take extra caution on the roads this morning, with heavy fog across parts of the East of England.

Agency consultants at Ipswich Hospital are being paid up to £126 per hour to fill gaps in the rota, it has been revealed.

Concerns are growing for the welfare of a missing Suffolk man – who has not been seen for five days.

A smoke alarm helped save lives during a blaze at a home in Ipswich this evening.

Only one potential witness seen on CCTV in Bury St Edmunds on the night Corrie McKeague disappeared remains unidentified.

A horse had to be sedated for rescue after falling into a private swimming pool in north Essex.

A community school art project has helped break down the “invisible barrier” between the Whitehouse and Whitton wards in Ipswich, a former mayor has claimed.
