A shop front was left with "significant damage" in a failed attempt to rip out a cash machine with a digger, police say.

The Tesco Express in Dymchurch, Kent, remained close on Sunday after the attempted robbery at about 02:15 GMT.

Officers are trying to trace a silver 4x4 and a flatbed Ford Transit van that were also at the scene.

The digger was believed to have been stolen from Dymchurch Beach about 30 minutes earlier, Kent Police said.
