Police investigating ATM robbery in Down

It's the second robbery of an ATM in two days.

An investigation is underway after a digger was used to take an ATM from a filling station in Down on Saturday morning.


Around 3am on Saturday morning, a number of men used a digger to remove an ATM from the filling station.

The digger is believed to have been taken from a location close to the filling station and was set on fire after the incident.

Part of the garage was also set alight and the Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service attended the scene and extinguished the blaze.

Both the garage and the digger were extensively damaged in the incident.
