A man ram-raided a Tesco and stole a haul of scratch cards before fleeing the scene.

The robbery occurred in the early hours of this morning, when a vehicle is believed to have been driven into the door and window of the supermarket on Brinsworth Lane, Rotherham.

The glass on the shopfront came away from the frame and the man is believed to have run inside, stolen the scratch cards, got back into the car and fled towards Pringle Road.

A police spokesman said: “The robbery occurred at around 1.35am.

“Officers would like to speak to anyone who believes they may have seen any suspicious people in the area prior to the incident, or noticed any unfamiliar vehicles to please come forward.”
