Ram raiders left empty handed after failing to steal a cash machine from an off license in Whittlesey overnight.

The ram raid on the Drink Shack off license in Whitmore Street happened between 1.45am and 2am today (Wednesday October 18).

“A silver Audi estate and a stolen Mitsubishi 4X4 were used by the offenders,” said a police spokesman.

“The latter was used to ram the shop and it’s believed a failed attempt was made to get the ATM machine.

“It appears the Audi, also suspected stolen, was then found alight in a car park in Earith.”

There have been no arrests at this time and investigations into the incident are ongoing.

Firefighters from Huntingdon were called to the blaze, near the A1123, at 2.38am and used breathing apparatus and hoses to tackle the fire.

They said the fire in the car had been started deliberately.

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
