A SHOPKEEPER thwarted a raid after finding men preparing to wreck the shop's shutters with a car in the early hours.
He was woken at 3.45am yesterday after hearing a banging noise at the Spar store at Barnsley Road, Flockton.
He looked out of his window and saw two men attaching a rope to the store's shutters and a dark Volkswagen car reversing into position to be attached to it.
He shouted at the men, described as young looking, and they fled.
Huddersfield CID are urging anyone with information to contact them on 01484 436582.
