Essex Police has released CCTV footage in connection with the theft of a cash machine.

Thieves used a JCB digger to smash into the front of Newport Stores in Newport High Street, near Saffron Walden, shortly after 1.20am on Tuesday, September 25.

The cash machine was removed from the wall and believed to have been put on the back of a white Toyota Hilux, which then left the scene towards Wickham Road.

The Toyota was later found burnt out in a field between Hatley and Gamlingay in Cambridgeshire.

“Our enquiries remain ongoing and we are releasing CCTV footage in the hope it will jog the memory of anyone who saw these men or vehicles in the area before or after the incident,” an Essex Police spokesman said.

“We appreciate it’s not of the clearest quality, but someone will know who they are and we ask anyone with information to call us on 101 quoting the crime reference number 42/139010/18.”

Alternatively, people can Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Two people have been killed in a collision on a road near Newmarket.

Fears have been raised that Suffolk may have a systemic problem with how children’s homes are run after a third establishment was given a poor Ofsted rating in the last 10 weeks.

Jennifer Pearson from Felixstowe claims she had dog mess shoved through her letter box, her tyres slashed, and even had people spit at her – leaving her youngest daughter in tears.

Sixteen people were rescued from rising water after four cars and a bus got stuck in high tide on The Strood crossing at Mersea Island.

A community close to the Essex Suffolk border has been left shocked and saddened following the death of a pedestrian.

The heart of two communities shone through as well-wishers - including an MP - rushed to help people injured in two serious falls.

Suffolk may have enjoyed an almost frost-free winter so far, but the big freeze descended on one town this weekend and so did scores of visitors enticed by the ice.
