A shop in a small village in Berkshire was ram raided by a vehicle.

Budgens in Victoria Road, Mortimer, was damaged in the raid.

Owner Charlie Hills said a 4x4 reversed in to the front of the shop. Nothing of value was stolen due to the security system in place.

He said: "There is a lot of mess but we are clearing up. It's a lot of damage and a lot of trouble for nothing effectively."

Thames Valley Police confirmed the shop was raided between 03:30 and 04:00 GMT.
