Three cash machines were targeted in the Harrogate and York areas.

Police believe four or five men were involved in the incidents.

North Yorkshire Police were called at 1.20am today to reports of a break-in at Starbeck Post Office, on the High Street.

Money was stolen from the cash machine inside the building after it was forced open.

At 3.56am, officers were called to the Post Office on Colliergate, York, to reports of a break-in.

Police believe the intruders targeted the cash machine and investigations are ongoing to establish how much money was taken from it.

During a third incident at the Co-op shop on Hull Road, York, offenders damaged the shutters at a cashpoint but did not leave with any money.

It was reported to police at 6.23am today when staff arrived for work.

The circumstances surrounding the incidents suggest they are linked.
