A gang smashed through the front of a Wirral supermarket with a car and stole a "large quantity" of cash.

Staff at Tesco Express, Mill Park Drive, were cashing up at about 23:15 BST on Saturday when a black Vauxhall Corsa reversed into the metal shutters.

Officers said three men took money from a self-service till and drove off in the direction of Hooton, Cheshire.

No one was injured, but "considerable damage" was caused.
