Police are appealing for witnesses to the robbery which happened in Outwell last week.

At approximately 7.15pm on Thursday 1 December 2016 Costcutter on Church Drove was entered by two unknown men. One threatened the staff with what is thought to be a knife whilst the other put a long canvas strap around the ATM.

This strap was then attached to a sports car directly outside of the shop and an attempt was made to steal the ATM. After failing, the suspects re-entered the shop, removed the strap and broke the till drawer before leaving the scene.

Anyone who may have witnessed the robbery, or anyone with information, should contact DC Chris Parnham at Kings Lynn CID on 101.

Alternatively contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or via their anonymous online form at
