RAIDERS rammed a Land Rover into a Highcliffe shop late last night, police say.

However, the vehicle overturned onto its roof during the attempt. There is currently no further information on whether anything was taken.

Officers were called just after 11.30pm to the Co-op in Lymington Road.

Police say a Land Rover Discovery had repeatedly hit the front of the shop, smashing the glass door and destroying a shutter, before overturning onto its roof.

The offenders then ran off towards Wortley Road.

It is not yet clear if anything was taken.

Detective Inspector Gavin House, of Bournemouth CID, called for anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the nearby area at the relevant time to get in touch.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information to assist my investigation," he said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police via or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55190171017.
