Five men are being hunted by police after a stolen digger was used in a ram-raid.

The Tesco store on Coppice Row, Theydon Bois, Essex, had its wall smashed out and its cash machine stolen.

The men, dressed in black and wearing balaclavas, made off towards Abridge in a black Range Rover and navy Ford Fiesta at about 03:00 BST.

The Range Rover, which had been reported as stolen, was later found by officers on Tysea Hill.
