Three members of a ram raid gang who were jailed for stealing £34,000 from a bank have each been ordered to pay back more than £36,000.

Ivan Hutchinson, 29; Ebby Hall, 45, and Kevin Smith, 28, raided Barclays in Kimbolton, Cambridgeshire, with a digger in September 2012.

All three admitted charges relating to the raid and were jailed in July.

Peterborough Crown Court heard each must pay back £36,658.33, which includes the value of stolen vehicles.

Hutchinson, Hall, Smith and a fourth man, Richard Clues, hatched a scheme to steal the digger and vehicles including a Land Rover, a Ford Focus and BMW.

They then disguised them with fake number plates for the raid.

At the hearing on Thursday, the court heard they made a total of £34,190 stolen from cash machine and the value of the stolen vehicles - later found burned out - was £75,785.

Hutchinson, of Brington Road, Huntingdon, was jailed for seven years and two months after admitting conspiracy to steal motor vehicles and conspiracy to burgle.

Hall, of White Post Road South, Eye, and Smith, of Clay Lake, Spalding, Lincolnshire, were both sentenced to five years and three months after admitting the same charges.

Hall was given a further 10-month sentence to run consecutively for breaching a suspended sentence.

A further hearing will be held next month for Clues, who was jailed for 18 months after admitting disguising criminal property.
