A ram raid gang reversed a Vauxhall Vectra into a Co-Op window then sped off down the wrong side of the A2.

Police were called to the Co-Op, in Wainscott Road, Wainscott, after reports of a burglary on Friday, August 15, at about 11.40pm.

Officers found the car after it was involved in a collision on the coast-bound slip road of the M25, but the gang fled as police arrived.
