This video shows the moment a group of thieves used a heavy-duty forklift to steal a cash machine from north-east shop, before driving away with it in the boot of a car.
The footage, filmed from a property near the Scotmid in Torphins, shows a man jumping in and out of the forklift with his head covered by a grey hoodie.
A waiting car then reverses towards the shop with its boot wide open.
A number of men are seen – partially obscured by a sign – lifting what appears to be the cash machine, with the forklift driver moving it to a better position to help shift the ATM.
An eyewitness is seen walking towards the vehicles with a phone taking a number of pictures of the vehicle as the men drive off – leaving the forklift behind.
