Gang attempts raid on Swanley cash depot with JCB

A gang has used a JCB digger to smash the wall of a cash depot in Kent in an attempted robbery, police have said.

The digger was driven into the depot in Mark Way, Swanley, which holds and distributes money, at about 05:15 GMT.

Staff inside the depot were unhurt and the suspects drove off after abandoning their attempts to enter the building, leaving the digger behind.

It is believed a five or six-strong gang was involved in the raid. All of them had their faces covered.

Police are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
