Papworth store falls victim to ram-raid

RAM-RAIDERS have smashed into a Papworth convenience store and stolen a cash machine this morning (Friday).

The offenders stole a Land Rover Discovery in Cambridge before crashing it into the Nisa store, in Ermine Street at 12.50am. They loaded the ATM into another vehicle, believed to be a green Subaru Forrester.

The four men left the Land Rover outside the shop and dumped the Subaru, and the ATM, in Pyrecroft, Lower Cambourne.

Detective Inspector Ian Simmons said: “I would urge anyone who saw either of these vehicles prior to the raid, or the Subaru afterwards, to call police.

“I would also like to reassure local residents I have a team of officers investigating this incident and CCTV is being reviewed to try and find the offenders who did this.
