Police are appealing for information after ram raiders escaped police in a dramatic car chase.

Officers were called at 3.55am, after the alarm went off at the Co-op in Chancery Lane, Debenham.

A JCB teleporter was used to remove the cash machine from the building and then placed in the back of an Isuzu pick-up truck.

A police unit on its way to attend the ram raid encountered the Isuzu in the Mendlesham area with the cash machine on the back. The offenders abandoned this vehicle in a road off the A140, where they got into a silver Audi A5 without number plates and made off from the officers.
