Stolen digger used in failed Hartlepool Tesco cash machine raid
Thieves used a stolen digger to smash in the wall of a supermarket but failed to make off with a cash machine.
Police in Hartlepool disturbed the raid on the Tesco Express in Wiltshire Way but the gang then tried to escape in a Land Rover, sparking a pursuit.
The vehicle was later found dumped and burned out in Trimdon, County Durham.
A 31-year-old was arrested in connection with the raid just before 02:30 GMT. Police believe another getaway car may also have been used.
The incident happened at 02:40 GMT.
