The Corsham Co-op badly damaged in a ram raid attack on Thursday has now re-opened.

The store on Macie Drive was broken into around 11.20pm when two men reversed a stolen van into the front doors. Nothing was taken in the raid, which police believe was targeted at a free-standing cash machine.

Fire crews worked through the night to make the structure safe after the crash, before structural engineers were called to stabilise the frontage.

The store was back open for business on Saturday through the rear entrance, while the front doors remain boarded up pending more building work.

Wiltshire Police are still appealing for witnesses who saw the men fleeing the scene in a white car on Thursday night.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Melksham CID on 101, or to call Crimestoppers anonymously.
