A group of men are believed to have driven a white van into the window.

They fled the scene in an Audi car after their attempts at removing a cash machine failed, police said. No-one has yet been arrested.

The road was closed while West Midlands Police carried out inquiries.

Tweeting about the raid, West Midlands Police force response said an investigation has been launched.
