A stolen Land Rover has been used in a ram raid which targeted the front of a SPAR shop in a village near Sudbury.
The incident took place in the early hours of this morning in Glemsford where the vehicle was reversed into the front of the shop to gain access.
Officers were called at shortly at around 2.45am this morning to reports of the incident in Bells Lane and attended to find that the front of the shop has been smashed in.
The suspects used a blue Land Rover Defender with a white roof to reverse through the windows of the premises causing extensive damage to the front shop windows and metal shutters.
It is thought they fled the scene in a red Audi estate - the Land Rover was left in situ at the location.
