Another cash machine blown up as thieves strike again (Belffasttelegraph)

Thieves have blown up a cash machine four months after a similar raid obliterated an ATM in the same town. The latest incident happened at 1.40am outside the Heron Foods store on Cockerton Green, Darlington. Police believe the suspects filled the free-standing machine with gas and ignited it to cause an explosion.

They then made off with an unknown quantity of cash. It was the same method as raiders used in October on a cashpoint outside Matalan in Darlington.

The Heron Foods store, which is close to a busy roundabout, was closed and its front cordoned off after the theft.

Components from the cash machine were strewn on the floor, but there was much less obvious damage to surrounding structures than the previous blast at Matalan. Read more
