THE ATTEMPTED ROBBERY of an ATM was stopped last night by gardaí in Co Monaghan.

The incident took place shortly before 3am last night on the Dublin Road in Castleblayney.

A teleporter was taken from a building site at a school nearby and used to smash a wall of the bank and remove the ATM.

It is believed the would-be thieves had placed barriers on roads leading to the area, and these hindered gardaí responding to the incident.

Once arriving at the scene, a dark coloured Audi A6 and a Ford Transit van were seen speeding away from the scene.

Gardaí pursued the van until it crossed over the border into Northern Ireland.

Nothing was taken the in attempted robbery, and the teleporter and ATM were both left at the scene.

An investigation into the incident is on-going.
