A group dressed in high-visibility jackets tried to rip a cash machine out of a wall by hooking it up to a cable, police have said.

The attempted theft happened at around 1.30am on Saturday, March 9 at the Esso service station in The Street, Great Barton.

According to a spokesman for Suffolk police, a car pulled up and two people wearing high-visibility jackets attached a cable to the ATM.

He said: “A third person who remained in the car then drove the vehicle forward and attempted to pull the cash machine out, but this was not successful and the vehicle drove off towards Bury St Edmunds.”

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact West CID at Bury St Edmunds Police Station on 101 quoting crime reference 13408/19.
