Masked gang breaks into Alford bank

A gang is being sought by police after a burglary at a bank in a Lincolnshire town.

Police said they responded to an automatic alarm at Lloyds TSB in Market Place, Alford, at about 0200 BST.

It is believed three men, who were wearing balaclavas, broke into the building and tried to take cash.

Officers said the investigation was at an early stage and it was not yet clear how the gang got into the building or how much money had been stolen.

The area has been cordoned off.
