A DIGGER WAS used to rip an ATM from the wall of a Sligo bank in the early hours of this morning.

The raid on a branch of Bank of Ireland in Tubbercurry occurred at 5.30am, just 200 metres from the local Garda station.

The machine was discovered soon afterwards, having been removed from the area using a van.

It was found 20km from the town in Coolaney.

Both scenes have been sealed off for a forensic examination.
