The BBC reports that a series of arrests have been made, following the ram-raids in Birchington early this morning.
Station Road was cordoned off for forensic investigations after a cash machine was stolen from the HSBC bank in Station Road. It was later found intact on farmland.
Ram-raiders also unsuccessfully targeted the Barclays Bank branch in Station Road, where a mechanical digger was abandoned at the scene.
The stolen cash machine and flat-bed truck used to drive it from the scene were later found on a farm near Reculver.
Police said the JCB digger used in the ram-raids was stolen from the Ramsgate area in the route to Birchington
