Robbers blew up a cash machine in Darlington and stole a five-figure sum of cash.

It is thought the free-standing ATM on Cockerton Green was filled with gas and ignited early on Wednesday.

A 34-year-old man from the Bradford area was arrested in Leeds, and a 33-year-old man, also from the Bradford area, has been arrested in Darlington.

Durham Police said it was continuing to pursue a number of lines of enquiry.
