Police are investigating after a cash machine was stolen from a bank in Pocklington in the early hours of this morning.

Officers were called just after 3.30am to reports of the incident at the HSBC on Market Place.

A JCB teleporter vehicle was used to steal the ATM, which was loaded onto the back of a green and white Ford Transit flatbed van.

The van and the damaged ATM machine were later found near to a roundabout near Pocklington industrial estate. The JCB was left at the scene.

Two white estate cars were also used in the theft. One was thought to be an Audi.

Officers were quickly in the area and made an extensive search. A police car was rammed by one of the cars as the suspects made their escape.

Police are keen to hear from anyone with any information to contact them on 101 quoting log 46 on 22/11/17 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Superintendent Ed Cook, Operational Commander, said:

"Officers attended extremely rapidly to this in line with an existing response plan to such incidents.

"A police car was rammed during the getaway but no officers were injured. The offenders didn't get away with any cash.

"Humberside Police are mounting a joint operation with neighbouring police forces in relation to this incident."
