Thieves dig 100ft tunnel to steal from cash machine

It must've taken them weeks to do it and they must have wanted that machine really badly to go to all this effort again.

A group of thieves in Britain have dug a 100ft tunnel under a building to reach a cash machine.

The gang - who are thought to be the same group who dug a 60ft tunnel at the same place in August 2007, which was discovered by builders and later filled in - spent six months digging the passageway under a Blockbusters video store in Manchester to get to the ATM and they got away with around £6,000.

A store worker told The Sun newspaper: "We all remember the first attempt to steal the machine.

"It seems the people responsible simply refused to give up.

"It must've taken them weeks to do it and they must have wanted that machine really badly to go to all this effort again."
