A gang of raiders who used a mechanical digger to rip a cash machine from the wall of a bank rammed a police car as they made their getaway.

The gang tore the ATM from the wall of the Nat West Bank in Peppard Road in Sonning Common, south Oxfordshire, during the early hours of Tuesday.

The police car, which was responding to the incident, was rammed when the gang fled in two 4x4 vehicles.

Two officers inside the car were not seriously hurt.

Police are keen to speak to anyone who discovers an abandoned and damaged 4x4.

Det Con Frankie Sillitoe, of Thames Valley Police, said: "These were clearly very determined men.

"I am keen to speak to anyone who may have seen these vehicles on the road in the hours leading up to the incident or any time thereafter."
