Stolen JCB in smash and grab post office raid

A JCB truck was used to break into the post office in Holmes Chapel and steal the cash machine for what is thought to be the third time in 14 years.
The digger was stolen from a maintenance yard in Rode Heath in the early hours of yesterday (Wednesday) before being driven seven and a half miles up to the shopping precinct on London Road.
It is thought the robbers used the front shovel of the digger to smash their way through the front of the McColls store before making off with the cash machine.
