A reward of up to £25,000 has been offered after two men tried to raid a cash machine in Surrey.

Police said the reward had been put up by the British Bankers Association Reward Scheme after the raid at Lloyds TSB in Cranleigh on 28 September.

The ramraid caused significant structural damage to the bank and other buildings and a digger was left with its engine running at the scene.

The suspects also left a van behind as they fled empty-handed.

'Unusual sight'

Det Con Andrew Skoglund said he hoped the offer of such a substantial reward would encourage people to come forward.

The bright green digger was stolen overnight from the Godalming area and driven to the cash machine in Cranleigh High Street in the early hours.

Det Con Skoglund said it would have been noisy and an unusual sight.

Nearby buildings were damaged after a first attempt to smash the digger into the unit failed and the suspects reversed the vehicle to try again.

The pair ran off after their second attempt failed.

The reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the offenders.
