Three men have tried to use gas explosives to steal a cash machine near Aylesbury.

They made the attempt at the garage in Whitchurch just after midnight, but failed.

Police say this is linked with a successful theft a few hours later.

The second incident occurred at the Post Office in Mill Street, Eynsham at about 2.30am.

On this occasion, offenders used a gas based explosion to remove the machine and took an amount of cash.

They then fled the scene.

The offenders are three men.

No further description is available at this time.

Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Justin Harris, based at Aylesbury police station, said:
