An investigation has been launched after a cash machine was stolen from outside a petrol station in Hawkhurst.
Kent Police was notified that a free-standing ATM was stolen from outside the premises on Rye Road at around 1.20am on Wednesday 1 May 2019.
It is understood a Land Rover Defender with a white roof used a chain to pull it from its position and then drag it along the road towards Sussex.

‘We would also like to hear from anybody who saw the vehicle travelling into Hawkhurst, leaving the village along Rye Road or driving in the vicinity of Water Lane.’
