A £25,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those involved in a ram-raid at a Gloucestershire bank.

Tens of thousands of pounds were stolen in the robbery at the HSBC bank in Quedgeley last Friday.

Two men drove a Nissan Navara through the doors of the branch at 09:25 BST and snatched the money while it was being loaded into a cash machine.

The reward has been donated by the bank.

Navara 'found'

Gloucestershire Police said the men, who were wearing balaclavas, stole "a substantial amount of money" from the bank in Olympus Park.

The Navara that detectives believe was used in the robbery was found abandoned in Carters Orchard in Quedgeley on Sunday.

Det Ch Insp Marc Flannery said: "We're hoping that this money may convince someone to come forward who was reluctant before.

"These offenders need to be stopped before they strike again and possibly hurt someone."

He added: "Please think back to that morning and call us if you can help. No matter how small a detail you think it is we want to hear it."

Officers are still particularly keen to speak to customers who tried to use the cash machine, which was out of service, between 09:00 and 09:25 BST.

Police would also like to hear from anyone who saw the green, double cab 4X4 in the Carters Orchard area or nearby between 09:20 and 09:30 BST on the day of the ram-raid.
