A police cordon was put in place in Backwell this morning (Tuesday) after a cashpoint machine was found to have been damaged.

Avon and Somerset Constabulary was called to the cash machine in Rodney Road at 5.41am after someone called police with concerns about items left next to it.

Officers attended, and found the machine had been damaged.

A police spokesman said: “A small cordon was initially put in place while the fire service assessed the scene, but this has now been lifted as there’s no ongoing risk.

“We’re yet to establish whether any money was taken and our enquiries are continuing.”
