Police are appealing for witnesses following the attempted robbery of a cash machine from Barclays Bank in Kimbolton.

The incident happened at about 2.30am on Friday (January 6) in the High Street when four men wearing dark clothes and balaclavas used a teleporter to break through the wall of a bank in an attempt to remove the cash machine.

The men left the ATM, teleporter and a Range Rover at the scene and made off empty handed in a 4x4 vehicle in the direction of St Neots.

Detective Inspector Dan Pawson said: “We would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen something. Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem could prove valuable to the investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
