The shop in Mulberry Close was targeted between 10pm and 10.15pm by offenders who drove a grey BMW X5 and a grey BMW 118 into the store, causing considerable damage.

Offenders then attempted to remove the cash machine and left in a third car – a dark saloon – and headed in an unknown direction.

Dt Con Joanne Barkat said: “We believe there were up to five people involved and that the three cars were driven in convoy through Stotfold before arriving at the Co-op.

“We are keen to trace the people involved and would urge anyone who has any information about this incident to come forward.”
