MASKED men torched a car they drove into a supermarket after failing in several attempts to smash a cash machine out of the wall.
The ram raiders tried to remove metal barriers on the front of the Aldi supermarket on Barnsley Road, Goldthorpe, at around 11.05pm on Sunday.
They then crashed a silver or blue Nissan X-Trail 4x4 into the building in an attempt to dislodge the cash machine.
After several unsuccessful attempts, the frustrated raiders set fire to the vehicle before running from the area empty handed.
A spokesman for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said crews from Dearne and Adwick had spent around 40 minutes at the scene.
Anyone with any information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 1166 of November 19.
