DETERMINED thieves took extreme measures when they targeted a cash machine.

The gang struck at the Potton Service Station on Biggleswade Road, emptying the machine of cash.
The gang members, who were all dressed in dark clothing and balaclavas, left the scene in a green Subaru estate car which had been stolen from the March area of Cambridgeshire the previous day. This vehicle was found shortly after by police in Church Road, Tempsford.
