The Nationwide Building Society in Whittlesey is to remain closed for the “forseeable future” following a ram raid which happened at the branch on Saturday morning (October 28). 

At around 1.45am officers were called to reports that four suspects were at Nationwide, Eastgate, using a JCB digger and a white Ford Ranger pick-up truck to steal money from the cash machine. 

Photos from the scene showed the aftermath of the raid, and today (Monday, October 30), the building is boarded up with workmen inside assessing the damage. 

A spokesperson from Nationwide has said the building society is assisting the police with their enquiries following an incident at their Whittlesey branch over the weekend. 

They said: “Unfortunately, due to the extent of damage caused, the branch will remain closed for the foreseeable future and those branch colleagues will be working in other surrounding branches. 

“Customers needing to use a branch can use the ones in Peterborough and Ramsey. Opening hours can be checked on our website.” 

Cambridgeshire Police have said no arrests have been made currently.
