Raiders are on the run after ripping a cash machine out of the wall of a shop in Crowle.

They struck at McColls newsagents and off-licence, which also houses a post office, overnight, and used a forklift truck to steal the cash machine, according to reports.

The front of the High Street shop has been demolished and is under police guard.

A stretch of road between Godnow Road and Market Place has been cordoned off while forensic experts examine the area and police officers carry out enquiries at the scene.

Details of the incident have not yet been confirmed by Humberside Police, which covers Crowle.

The incident mirrors an incident in Armthorpe, Doncaster, one week ago today.

On that occasion, another forklift was used to steal a machine from the Halifax bank on Church Street.

The external wall to the bank was demolished in the raid.

In both incidents the raiders left the forklifts at the scene of the crimes and escaped.

Anyone with information should call 101 and pass on details on the Armthorpe raid to South Yorkshire Police.

Details on the incident can be passed onto Humberside Police on the same number.
