Five held over bid to steal Dungiven cash machine

Five people have been arrested over the attempted theft of an ATM cash machine in County Londonderry.

Police arrested four men, aged between 15 and 47 and a 37-year-old woman in Newtownstewart, County Tyrone.

Three men wearing balaclavas attempted to steal the machine from a post office in Dungiven early on Monday.

They smashed a window, put a chain around the ATM, attached it to a stolen 4-by-4 vehicle and tried to drag it away. But they were unsuccessful.
