A stolen car was used to attempt to ram-raid a Shirebrook loan shop.

The black Ford Mondeo – which was stolen from Worksop – was seen reverse into metal shutters of the Quick Cash and Cheque shop on Victoria Street at around 11pm last night (Thursday, May 30).

Police said a witness saw a figure running from the car into the market place. The vehicle has since been recovered, and there is minimal damage to the shop.

Police are appealing for witnesses. Call 101 with information.
