The ram raid happened at about 2.50am today (Wednesday) in Gunthorpe Road, Gunthorpe, when a 4x4 was used to remove a shutter from a shop.

Severe damage was done to the building and much of the stock in the shop has been destroyed, and left scattered at the shop front.

Part of the building was dragged away and has been left on the other side of the road.

A Cambridgeshire police spokesman said: “It is believed offenders used a 4x4 vehicle to pull the roller shutter from the front of the shop before ripping out an ATM machine.

“The incident caused extensive damage to the front of the shop and to stock.
