But the would-be thieves managed to escape.

Nearby residents called the police at around 4am yesterday after they heard a bang. Four people were then spotted trying to prise out the Credit Suisse machine.

Police say they arrived just as the gang were fleeing in a car.

Police forces across the country say they’re battling a spate of attacks on cash machines, especially in border areas.
