Shocking CCTV footage has revealed how a woman fought off two would-be robbers at a cash machine.

The incident took place just three days before Christmas in Suffolk, England.

Police have now released the footage in a bid to identify the two men.

Camilla Rodwell (51) was trying to withdraw money from the machine at a Barclays Bank in Market Hill when she was approached by the two men.

One of the men attempted to push buttons on the screen but the woman fought back.

A spokesman added: “The victim pushed him back before another man then approached her at the other side and tried to take the cash and bank card but was also fended off, before a member of the public then intervened and the men walked away in the direction of Station Road.”
