Police have released CCTV images of a digger being used to rip out a cash machine from a bank in Suffolk.

Thieves targeted a Lloyds TSB branch, in Hadleigh, at about 03:30 BST on Wednesday.

The digger had been taken from a nearby building site. A small dark hatchback car was spotted being driven away from the scene.

The Lloyds Banking Group is offering a £25,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible.

The cash machine was dumped nearby with its cash cartridges removed.

Structural engineers are assessing damage caused to the bank, which was left with a gaping hole in its front wall.

Police are appealing for witnesses to contact them.
