Police are hunting two people who stole around £300 from a cash machine in Accrington.

The pair took the money after a man used the Barclays on Union Street but accidentally left cash there and walked away.

A spokesman for Accrington police said the theft took place at around 8.30am on Thursday, May 3.

He said: "Immediately afterwards a man and a woman approached the cash machine and took the money, thought to be around £300 and walked away in the direction of Broadway."

Anyone with information is asked to contact police by calling the new non emergency number, 101.
