Derbyshire police said: "At around 4am this morning (Tuesday, June 14) police were called to the Co-op service station on Chesterfield Road in Duckmanton after reports that an attempt had been made to steal the ATM machine.

"Officers attended and searched the area. A black Land Rover Discovery, which had damage to its rear end, was found abandoned in a field off of Rectory Road.

"Anyone that saw the Land Rover between the times of 4am and 4.15am, or any other vehicles driving erratically in the area, is asked to contact DC Craig Chidlow on 101 quoting incident number 48 of June 14."
