Thieves spent “months” digging an 100 foot long tunnel beneath a car park and video shop in an elaborate robbery on a cash machine but got away with just a few thousand pounds. Detectives believe the gang may have spent up to six months digging the passageway, which extended from a railway embankment, under a car park and beneath a shop where the cash machine was located.

The tunnel, which was around 100 feet in length and 4 feet tall, had been fitted with lighting and roof supports.                        –DT
