Tipper truck used in ram raid
Thieves used a stolen tipper truck to ram raid a shop in Kidderminster and escape with thousands of pounds worth of cigarettes.

The incident happened on Thursday at around 2130 BST at Bookers Cash and Carry in the town.

Police say up to eight men used the truck to make a hole in the side of the shop before stealing around 15,000 worth of branded cigarettes.

The men escaped in two cars, one of which is believed to be a Ford Sierra Cosworth.

The tipper truck, which had a crane on the back, was stolen from Kingsbury Garden Centre in Tamworth.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Kidderminster CID.
