A shopkeeper fought off would-be robbers with a stick after they tried to steal a cash machine.

The offenders burst into a Costcutter store in Manchester after driving a BMW up to the front at 20:20 GMT on Monday.

Footage shows the shopkeeper using a stick against two would-be robbers as they try to put a strap around the dispenser.

The offenders ran away empty-handed before driving from the crime scene in Heathside Road, Withington.

Greater Manchester Police appealed for information, saying no-one had yet been arrested.
