A west Suffolk building society branch has been closed temporarily to undergo a revamp. 

Nationwide in Newmarket's High Street will be closed to the public until Monday, August 5 while a refurbishment is carried out. 

It comes after the branch was broken into late last year where the cash machine was stolen during a ram raid. 

Officers were called to the Nationwide building at about 4.50am on Monday, December 4

On arrival, police found the ATM had been stolen during the raid.

A police cordon was put in place while officers carried out investigations. 

JCB telehandler was used to smash into the wall of the building society and remove the cash machine, parts of which were later loaded into a Luton van. 

The van then made off in convoy with a white Mercedes A Class towards Cambridgeshire, with the JCB left behind in High Street.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said officers believe four suspects were involved and were all dressed in dark-coloured clothing and were wearing balaclavas. 

The branch reopened on Wednesday, January 31.

No arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
