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.
