Thieves steal thousands from cash machine through tunnel

Thieves who built a 50ft (15m) tunnel to a cash machine in Salford got away with more than £80,000.

The theft happened on Friday at Tesco on Liverpool Road, Eccles, between midnight and 06:00 GMT, police said.

The raiders tunnelled under nearby wasteland overnight and into the shop, where they stole cash boxes. They then escaped back through the tunnel.
