Two stolen cars and a stolen telehandler were used for a ram raid in the early hours of today on a village shop in South Cambridgeshire.
“This is the devastation in Bassingbourn High Street this morning after a ram raid took place in the early hours,” said a spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police.
“We were called at 3.33am to the Spar shop on Bassingbourn High Street.
“A group of at least three men targeted the ATM at the store using two stolen vehicles – a Mitsubishi L200 stolen last night and an Audi RS6, also stolen from our county. The group also used a stolen telehandler.”
Police said they were remaining in the area to enable specialists to “preserve evidence”.

Police say you can help us stop ram raids like these by:
Ensuring your vehicles have working trackers installed – particularly owners of high-performance cars or ‘heavy vehicles’ such as transits and flat beds
Consider installing video doorbells or CCTV
Report anything suspicious, for example people scoping houses or tampering with number plates
Report any instances of people appearing to be paying attention to ATM machines, including taking photos or unauthorised people attaching ‘out of order’ signs
Raise concerns about anything that doesn’t feel quite right involving high performance cars, ‘heavy vehicles’ or plant travelling in towns and villages during the hours of darkness
Report high-performance or ‘heavy’ vehicles that are not usually in the area and appear to have been left parked for a few days
