The car had mounted a deep step off the pavement and shattered a pane of glass on the building’s frontage after driving through the shutters.

A group of four men who were inside the car got away with two ATM casettes. It is not known how much cash was inside.

The men then sped off in a silver Vauxhall Astra which was found abandoned on Morrell Street later that morning.

It is thought the four then got into a third car, a dark-grey saloon car and drove off.
