Police are hunting two men after a ram raid incident in Colne in the early hours of this morning.

A dumper truck and a digger was rammed into the wall of a Londis store at the Cotton Mill works in Knotts Lane at around 3-30am where it is believed two men stole the keys to the machines before they managed to start up the dumper truck.

Police believe the culprits were targeting the ATM machine but they fled on foot empty handed. Although the wall was damaged the ATM machine was not stolen or compromised.

Police are now trying to trace the two men.
