Police are appealing to what witnesses have described as a "very professional" ram raid at a store in Chatteris overnight (Thursday).

The Nisa convenience store on Park Road was targeted for its cash machine.

It is believed the offenders rammed the front of the building causing massive damage with one vehicle which appears to have been abandoned , and the culprits then left the area in a different vehicle.

One witness said on social media: "It was over in a couple of minutes and am not sure a local Bobby could have done much in this case unfortunately. This was a proper professional job."

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: We were called at 10.48pm last night (6 January) to reports of a break in at Nisa in Chatteris. On attendance the suspects had left the scene and an investigation has begun. If anyone has any information they should contact us via web-chat or on 101 quoting incident 485 of 6 January."
