A man and a teenager have appeared in court charged in a connection with a ram-raid at a food store where a cash machine was ripped out of a building.

Police were called to the Co-op Food store in Kessingland, Suffolk, at about 02:30 BST on Monday.

Officers said a Land Rover used in the raid became stuck and another vehicle was used to leave the scene.

Jack Morgan, 21, of Bedfordshire, and a 17-year-old boy appeared at Norwich Magistrates' Court.

Mr Morgan, of Common Road, Potton, denied burglary, theft of a motor vehicle and attempted theft of a motor vehicle.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, denied burglary, theft of a motor vehicle, attempted theft of a motor vehicle and dangerous driving.

He has not pleaded to a charge of failing to stop for police.

The two were sent for trial at Ipswich Crown Court on 9 October.
