Santander has been unavailable for comment on the issue.

An officer later added that machines had been targetted with a range of devices.

Last week Lancashire Constabulary announced that it had been contacted by several people worried about suspicious activity at Santander cash machines – mainly in the east of the county, but a report was also made about the machine in Clifton Street, Lytham.
