Gang destroys machines - level 1

Gang destroys machines - level 1

20-06-2014 07:00

This happens in England. A gang attacks ticket machines. The people in the gang use tools to open the machines. Then they take the money that is inside.

Security cameras film the men. The video is good. Police know one man’s face.

The gang destroys six machines. These machines cost a lot of money. The six machines are worth £100,000.

Difficult words: tool (thing which you hold in your hand and use it to do a job), destroy (break), worth (cost).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
