Up to four suspects – all wearing dark clothing and balaclavas – stole a telehandler from a nearby farm to carry out a ram raid on the village Spar and post office at Crowland near Peterborough. Lincolnshire police say they believe the telehandler was stolen from a nearby farm in the early hours of today before it was driven to the store, on North Street, with a white flatbed van.

“Offenders are then thought to have used the telehandler to ram the store and then lift the ATM onto the flat bed van before leaving the scene, in the Trinity Bridge direction,” said a police spokesperson.

“It is believed that three or four suspects, all wearing dark clothing and balaclavas, were involved in the incident. Two are thought to have left the scene on foot and were possibly collected in another vehicle or had one parked nearby.
