Police are appealing for witnesses after thieves broke into a Royston newsagent and used specialist equipment to try to steal from the cash machine this morning.
The incident happened at about 2.30am when offenders parked a black vehicle opposite McColl’s in Queens Road.
After smashing the window to get in, they used specialist tools to try to access the cash machine, but were not successful.
The offenders then made off in a black car towards Mill Road.
Det Insp Linda Coates said: “We are appealing to anyone who may have seen a black Audi type car – believed to be a 2011 plate – in the area before or around the time of the burglary, to get in touch.
