Officers are appealing for dashcam footage as they continue to investigate the theft of a quantity of cash from an ATM in Kimberley.

Police were called at around 3.30am on Tuesday (5 November 2019) following reports of a cash machine being broken into at the Premier Store on Eastwood Road.

The force's control room received several calls from members of the public who heard a 'loud explosion'.

Detective Sergeant Luke Todd, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "We believe a large amount of cash was stolen.

"Do you know someone who has recently come into possession of a large amount of cash? If so we'd like to hear from you.

"This was a highly dangerous offence as an explosion was caused in order to damage the machine before cash was taken.

"The front of the ATM was blown off with such force that debris was scattered to the other side of the street. Had someone been in the way if it we could easily have been dealing with serious injury or death.

"Fortunately no-one was injured but we need information to catch the person responsible for this crime to prevent any further dangerous incidents from happening.

"We’re pursuing a number of lines of enquiry and we’re urging anyone who has any information which could help us with our investigation to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101.

"Our advice to anyone using a cashpoint is to be extremely vigilant of any suspicious activity nearby. If you notice anything unusual then call the police immediately."

If you have any information about the Kimberley incident please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 51 of 5 November 2019, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
