Thieves dig tunnel to cash machine in Manchester

Thieves in Manchester dug a 100ft underground tunnel over six months to get to a cash machine.

They used machinery to cut through more than 15in (38cm) of concrete to steal the money in Fallowfield Shopping Precinct, Levenshulme.

The tunnel started from a railway embankment at the rear of the shop, and went under a car park, and beneath the foundations of the store.

Charlie Stayt reports.
