Lancaster police are appealing for people to come forward with information after a cash machine was targeted on Lune Industrial Estate this week.

The incident took place overnight between Thursday 29th September into Friday 30th September when offenders entered a number of yards belonging to business premises on Lune Industrial Estate, to the side of the Spar shop on Willow Lane.

They smashed a number of bricks in the wall of the building that houses the ATM, in what appears to be an attempt to attack the machine, although it appears that nothing has been stolen.

“We’re asking for any members of the public who may have seen suspicious activity in the vicinity of the Spar shop on Willow Lane and the area around this location," says Detective Sergeant Mark Stephens from Lancaster CID, particularly on the industrial estate at the rear of the premises to contact us.

“The investigation is being co-ordinated by CID at Lancaster and any information relating to this incident can be reported to them via the telephone numbers 01524 63333 or 01524 596712.” 

• Information can also be passed through the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
