UPDATE: Police continue investigations at Wisbech St Mary property raided in connection with ram raid at a HSBC bank where a JCB was used

THIS was the scene in Garden Lane, Wisbech St Mary this afternoon after police continued their investigations following a dawn raid in connection with a botched bank raid.

Two men aged 50 and 27 were arrested on suspicion of burglary after officers swooped on the house at 7.30am today (Tuesday, September 4) and seized a JCB and a 4x4 vehicle.

Police continued their investigations well into the afternoon as the pair were taken to King’s Lynn for questioning following the ram-raid at the HSBC in Cornhill in the early hours of August 2.

Five balaclava-clad men used a JCB to break into the bank but fled empty handed.

The 27-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of producing cannabis after police discovered 14 cannabis plants inside.
