Two police officers have been injured by a gang who drove a Land Rover into the window of a building society trying to get to a cash machine.

Derbyshire Police said they were called to the Nationwide in Borrowash just after 04:00 GMT on Monday.

Officers saw people trying to drive away in an Audi A3 and a Transit van, which then reversed into a police car.

The officers who were in the car were taken to hospital with minor injuries, the police force said.

A police spokeswoman said: "We don't believe the gang was successful in breaking into the cash machine."
