CCTV footage of Bingham tractor ATM raid released

Police in Nottinghamshire have released CCTV footage of the moment a tractor was driven into the wall of a bank as thieves stole a cash machine.

The cash machine was stolen from the Market Place branch of Natwest in Bingham at about 02:45 GMT on Monday.

Police recovered the device along with a Land Rover Defender, stolen from Lincolnshire, and a trailer at a farm building in Kegworth in Leicestershire.

Police believe the tractor was driven direct to Bingham from Cropwell Butler.

When officers recovered the cash machine, it had been broken into and cleared of money.

The force said the culprits may have driven the Land Rover and attached trailer through a number of rural villages between Bingham and Kegworth, including Cotgrave, Wysall, Bunny and East Leake.

Sgt Steve Wragg, from Beeston CID, said: "It would have been an unusual sight to see the vehicle towing such a large trailer through quiet, rural villages in the early hours of the morning.

"Anyone who saw the vehicle may hold vital information which could help us find the people responsible for this incident," he said.
