A cash point in Market Harborough was blown apart in raid by thieves.

The stand-alone unit in Western Avenue, near to the Royalist pub and small row of shops was targeted at around 1.30am on Wednesday, January 30.

Police and forensics teams were on the site on Wednesday morning checking the scene.

It is thought that a gas canister was used to blow open the cash point.
