Two skimming devices used to steal bank account details have been found on pay-at-pump petrol pumps in Sudbury.

Police were called to the Tesco filling station in Springlands Way, Sudbury at around 6.30pm on Sunday night after a man alerted officers to the scam.

Another device was found on a second pump after officers arrived at the scene.

It is unknown how long the devices had been on the pumps, therefore people who have used the pay at pump facilities at the filling station are being asked to contact their bank to check for any unauthorised transactions.

It comes just four days after a skimming device was found at a Tesco petrol station in Martlesham Heath.

Meanwhile officers also removed a skimming device at an East of England Co-op store in Foxhall Road in Ipswich on February 20.

Police are urging anyone using cashpoints or similar pay points to be vigilant and to alert staff or officers as quickly as possible if you spot anyone tampering with them or if you find anything suspicious.

Anyone who has information in relation to this latest incident in Sudbury is asked to call Pc Ben Oswick at Sudbury Police on 101 quoting SU/14/530 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The police hunt for missing RAF gunner Corrie McKeague has been labelled “incompetent” by his mother, as an online campaign has raised more than £20,000 to hire a private investigator.

When I first heard about the new deal negotiated between Suffolk County Council and First Buses to provide a Park and Ride service for the town at no cost, I thought it sounded very good indeed writes Paul Geater.

Nearly half of Colchester’s council has opposed plans to build more than 16,000 homes in a garden village earmarked for West Tey, the town’s Tory leader has said.
