Two men have been arrested by Irish police over the theft of two ATMs in County Cavan in December.

A 41-year-old man was arrested in County Monagahan and a 42-year-old in Dublin.

Thieves used a digger to remove the machines from branches of the Ulster Bank and Bank of Ireland in Cootehill on 12 December.

The remains of the ATMs were found three days later by police in County Fermanagh.

A lorry and a car were found with them in woodland near Rosslea.
