A gang ram-raided a Burnley cash point in the early hours of this morning.

Witnesses told police that around eight offenders attempted to take or break in to the ATM which is located at the side of the Post Office on Coal Clough Lane, Burnley, at just before 3am this morning.

No one was injured during the incident.

Police are now appealing for witnesses and anyone with information should call 101 quoting incident log number 185 of April 16th.
