A cash machine has been blasted from a phone box in Lincolnshire.

Residents in Woodhall Spa were woken by the sound of the explosion on the Broadway at about 04:00 BST.

Police said the offenders did not make off with any cash, with officers appealing for witnesses.

Karen Horton, who was visiting her parents in the village, said: "I was woken by an extraordinary explosion, it almost shook the building."

She added: "I walked through to the kitchen window and I saw the cash machine hanging off the phone box and a guy jumping into a car and driving off."
