WEYHILL, United Kingdom -

British police have released security-camera video showing the moment thieves exploded an ATM at a gas station.

Officers were called Sunday to the Texaco station in Weyhill after residents reported a loud bang.

Police said the ATM was found in pieces.

Surveillance video shows the moment of impact and the destruction caused at gas station.  It also shows cash cascading to the ground in the moments after the blast.

"You know, I was so shocked and I come, you know, (it's) unbelievable," said the store owner.

Detectives are following up a number of leads and continue to ask the public for information.

Officers say the attack is similar to raids on cash machines in mainland Europe.
