London, Jan 21 (ANI): Dozens of people flocked to a ATM machine in Dundee, Scotland after it started 'spitting out' money, it has emerged.

Police were called to the Scotmid branch in Fintry Road after staff noticed a crowd gathering outside the ATM at the front of the shop.

The machine was paying out double the amounts requested said a witness.

The ATM, which is operated by Bank Machine Ltd, was put out of commission shortly afterwards.

"The machine was spitting out money," the BBC quoted a witness, who asked not to be named, as saying.

"There were 50 or 60 people queuing outside the shop and people were running around with smiles on their faces, saying it was paying out double the amount people were asking for," he said.

Scotmid said the ATM was operated independently and was not connected to the store.

A spokesman said: "Some of our staff at our store noticed large queues forming outside and they became a bit concerned. They could not get close enough to the machine to check out what was going on so they did exactly the right thing and called the police."

Tayside Police confirmed they attended the scene, adding there had been no incidents. (ANI)
