A gang used a stolen digger to rob village shop. The police released a security video of the attack. The incident happened in England shortly after 1am.

The digger was driven into the shop which was torn apart by it. The digger pulled the cash machine from the shop. The machine was then placed in the back of a car and driven away. The digger was left at the scene.

It was the fourth similar robbery in the county in the last few weeks.

Difficult words: digger (a large machine which digs and moves earth), tear apart (to pull something into pieces with force), county (an area of a state or country).
