THREE people were inside a bank during a ram-raid, it’s been revealed.

It comes as new images have been released of a ram-raid on the Santander in Dewsbury.

As the Examiner reporter earlier this week, raiders targeted the Santander bank on Northgate on Tuesday but failed to get-away with any cash.

At 6.48pm a grey-coloured Mitsubishi Shogun was driven into the front of the Santander bank on Northgate.

Police say a slim built man in dark clothing and wearing a Balaclava was then seen leaving the bank empty handed.

He got into a waiting red Seat Leon that had three other men, who were also wearing dark clothing and Balaclavas, in it. The Leon then drove off along Northgate and out of sight of witnesses at the scene.

It was later found abandoned on Camroyd Street and has been linked to Seat Leon that was stolen from the Leeds area a month ago.

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said: “The Mitsubishi Shogun is also known to have been stolen from the Earlsheaton area earlier on Tuesday morning. “Nothing was stolen from the bank and there were no injuries, despite their being three people in the bank at the time of the incident.”

Police want witnesses to contact DC Adrian Lever at Dewsbury CID on 01924 431012 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
