Police are hunting a thief who crashed a six-tonne dumper truck into a supermarket.

It caused significant damage to the Co-op in Lauder Road, Kirkcaldy, Fife.

The Benford Swivel Dumper had been reported stolen from Hayfield industrial estate before the incident at the Co-op at 2.40am on Monday.

The shop is expected to remain closed until the full extent of the damage is assessed.

Detective Graeme Dursley said: ``The premises will remain closed while we conduct our investigations at the scene and a full assessment of the damage to the building will need to be carried out.

``I'd urge anyone who may have been in the area of Hayfield industrial estate or Lauder Road in the early hours of the morning to get in touch.

``If you saw any suspicious behaviour or may have witnessed the truck travelling between these two locations, then please come forward.''
