London, Feb 21 (ANI): Robbers used a stolen forklift truck to rip off an ATM from the wall of a bank in Hatherleigh, west Devon.

According to cops, the trio of robbers fled with the contents of the hole-in-the-wall machine after tearing it from the NatWest bank building, leaving a ten-foot wide hole in the side.

They come dressed in reflective clothing and hard hats to pose as construction workers as they carried out the theft, before fleeing in a 4x4 vehicle and a car.

The amount of cash in the ATM is not yet known.

A police spokesman said the forklift, which has a maximum speed of just 40mph, had been stolen from the Bideford area of Devon last week.

"A stolen red Manitou forklift vehicle was used to penetrate the building and then pull the cash machine from the wall," the News of the World quoted him, as saying. (ANI)
