MASKED raiders attacked a security guard last night as money was delivered to a supermarket cashpoint in Suffolk.

Stunned shoppers looked on as the drama unfolded at Tesco in Fordham Road, Newmarket, just before 9pm.

Security guards were delivering the money to a cashpoint when three men, all wearing balaclavas, struck. It is believed one of the guards was attacked - although not seriously injured - and the robbers escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.

They made off in a blue BMW, which was later found abandoned nearby in Laureate School Road.
