During the raid – which happened at about 3.50am on Monday, October 10 – the machine in Ripple Road, Barking was filled with gas and detonated.

The nearby Day Lewis Pharmacy was also damaged during the theft and was forced to close for the day.

Det Con Katie Scott said: “The method used by these suspects is incredibly dangerous.

“It is fortunate that no one - including themselves - was injured during this robbery.”
