A GANG which twice raided a cash machine at Cuffley railway station has been jailed for a total of 30 years.

The 10 men, aged between 22 and 41, attacked the machines at stations across England during an eight-month spree between May 2007 and January 2008.

The prolific thieves, from Essex, East London and Hampshire, struck no fewer than 28 times, and are believed to have cost the ATM industry around �500,000.

They first raided Cuffley on November 2, 2007, causing �700 damage to the cash machine but failed to escape with any money.
