In a bizarre robbery a gang spent six months digging a tunnel to steal money from a cash machine.
Digging through the dirt under the street the criminals spent months meticulously carving out a passage that would place them underneath a cash machine at a Blockbuster Video store in Manchester. Amazingly the thieves actually managed to reach their target and made off with a grand total of £6000. "These people had obviously spent a long time plotting this crime and I doubt they would have been able to keep their plans secret for all that time, without telling others about their scheme," said Detective Sergeant Ian Shore. "In all my years of service, I have never seen anything quite as elaborate as this."
The labour-intensive robbery saw the gang spend six months digging a passageway under a Blockbuster Video in Fallowfield, Manchester to get up underneath the cash machine.
