A village convenience store was ram-raided in the early hours of this morning (Friday), with thieves using a digger to steal a cash point.
Police were called to the One Stop shop in Clifton at about 1.30am after a stolen JCB telescopic loader was used to smash a hole in the wall and steal a cash point, as residents slept in flats above.
The digger was left at the scene in Shefford Road, while three thieves made off with the cash point in a white pick-up truck – believed to have been stolen in Cambridgeshire.
Cars parked in the road were also damaged.
The convenience store was shut this morning and cordoned off with police tape.
