POLICE are hunting for a thief who placed a ‘skimming’ device on an ATM.

At some point between Wednesday (October 14) and Friday (October 16) a device was put on a Lloyds TSB bank machine in Sheep Street, Burford.

Money was taken from at least one person, who has been reimbursed.

A device may have also been put on the same machine in the last week of September.
