Suffolk police officers were called shortly after 4.15am to the East of England Co-op store, Rushmere Foodstore, in Selkirk Road.

A police spokeswoman said four men dressed in dark clothing smashed the front window to gain access to the store and steal alcohol and cigarettes.

The quartet then escaped in a white saloon car, which is described as possibly being a Ford Sierra.

One of the men is described as wearing a black hooded top with a white stripe.
