Police said the equipment was placed on the machine outside the HSBC branch in Broad Street sometime between Saturday, April 27 and Monday 29.

The devices were seized by police after being reported by the bank and officers would like to hear from anyone who might have seen anything suspicious around the cash machine during that period.

The tactic is one used by thieves to steal peoples’ bank card details and pin number, then taking cash from their account.
