A cash machine has been recovered by a member of the public near Mountfield, County Tyrone.

Police said they received a report on Monday at about 18.20 BST that a machine had been found on Barony Road.

Ten cash machines have been stolen in Northern Ireland this year and two in the Republic of Ireland.

"We are working with our colleagues in the banking industry to establish where the machine was taken from," said a police spokesperson.

The machines were ripped from the wall by a digger, which was then set alight.
