A stolen Land Rover has been used in a ram raid which targeted the front of a SPAR shop in a village near Sudbury.
The incident took place in the early hours of this morning in Glemsford where the vehicle was reversed into the front of the shop to gain access.
Officers were called at shortly at around 2.45am this morning to reports of the incident in Bells Lane and attended to find that the front of the shop has been smashed in.
The suspects used a blue Land Rover Defender with a white roof to reverse through the windows of the premises causing extensive damage to the front shop windows and metal shutters.
It is thought they fled the scene in a red Audi estate - the Land Rover was left in situ at the location.
At this stage it is thought nothing was stolen in the incident and no-one was hurt.
Officers remained on scene for most of the morning working with the owners of the shop to clarify what happened and if anything was taken.
It is understood that the store will be closed until further notice. A notice has been placed in the front window of the store explained that it is shut and cars pulling into the car park are being directed to another shop close by.
