Burglars attempted to break into a north Suffolk supermarket by forcing the door open with a crowbar.

Officers were called to reports that two people were attempting to get into Aldi, in Millennium Way, Lowestoft, around 2.45am this morning.

Police units arrived at the scene withing five minutes but the offenders ran off in the direction of the fields behind the store.

No entry was gained to the supermarket.

A black Peugeot 207 was left abandoned in front of the entrance and there was a large heavy duty cable attached to the back of the car.

It was using number plates which were stolen from a Peugeot 308 overnight between Sunday, May 13, and Monday, May 14, which had been parked in London Road, Beccles.
