A MASKED gang escaped with cash from the Hartshead Moor service station on the M62.
Three masked men armed with crowbars and circular stone-cutting tools attacked a cash machine in the foyer of the eastbound side of the services at around 4am and threatened staff who challenged them.
They left in a silver 3-series BMW with tinted windscreens.
A vehicle matching the description was later found abandoned at Whitehall Road in the Chain Bar area.
No-one was injured during the robbery, which police are investigating.
Any witnesses or anyone with any information should contact Det Sgt Ross Wadsworth at Halifax CID on 01422 337 085 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
