The store in Ellenbrook Green was targeted at 3.20am, a police spokesman said.

It appears a van has been used to strike the front of the shop to gain entry, leaving a door and window damaged.

The spokesman added the raiders got inside and stole the shop’s till containing a cash float.

The van used was a small blue vehicle described as similar to a Ford Transit. After the raid it was driven off at high speed in the direction of the Belstead Arms public house.

The suspects are described as a white man and a black man, both wearing dark clothing.

An investigation has been launched to find the culprits and anyone with information about the crime is asked to call Ipswich CID on 101 quoting incident number IW/15/3140, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
