ATTEMPTED BANK ROBBERY Between 5pm - 5.45pm last night (Monday Jan 31) two men smashed their way into Santander on High Street Long Eaton and attempted to steal cash. The men, wearing balaclavas and dark clothing, broke in through the front door and then used hammers to damage the ATM. They stole a box, which is believed to be empty, and then ran off and jumped into a Subaru estate car being driven by a third man. The car drove off along Tamworth Road towards Sawley.

No-one was hurt during the incident although bank staff and a security were on the premises at the time of the incident.

Anyone who witnessed the crime or has any information that may help the police enquiry should contact the police on 0345 123 33 33 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
