Cash machine skimming device found at Workington bank

A skimming device was discovered on a cash machine in Workington.

A customer using the HSBC machine, in Pow Street, alerted the bank on Wednesday.

Cumbria Police recovered a false panel, fitted to the front of the machine to look like the legitimate slot to obtain card details, and a video device.

They advised people who had used the machine to check their accounts and urged people to be vigilant when using cash machines.
