Astonishing footage of thieves ripping a cash machine from a Nationwide branch has been released by police.
The brazen ram-raiders smashed a Bobcat telehandler into the building society in Leicestershire on Monday morning.
The incredible CCTV shows the machinery repeatedly being driven into the building in the town centre of Ashby-de-la-Zouch.
Extensive damage was caused to the branch and a large amount of debris was left sprawled across the road.
Detectives believe three vehicles were used in the robbery including a dark coloured Audi and a silver pick-up.
Police now need your help in tracing those responsible.
A spokesman from the force said: “The Bobcat was used to ram the front of the building in order for the suspects to remove the cash machine which caused a significant amount of disruption.
“We have released the CCTV footage which clearly shows three vehicles in the area and the incident itself taking place.”
