Ram-raiders destroyed the front of a Whittlesey off-licence in an attempt to raid an ATM machine.

Drink Shack, which is on the roundabout leading onto the A605 towards Peterborough, was targeted by the ram-raiders using a stolen 4x4 between 1.45am and 2am this morning (Wednesday, October 18).

However, they appear to have been unsuccessful in taking the ATM machine, according to a police spokesman.

He said: “A silver Audi estate and a stolen Mitsubishi 4X4 were used by the offenders. The latter was used to ram the shop and it’s believed a failed attempt was made to get the ATM machine.

“It appears the Audi, also suspected stolen, was then found alight in a car park in Earith.”

No arrests have been made and investigations are ongoing.

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
