Gang destroys machines - level 2
A gang in England attacked six ticket machines. They used angle grinders and pickaxes to open the machines and steal the money.
Security cameras filmed two of the gang’s attacks. The men tried to break the security cameras at some stations, but the police have good-quality footage. One man’s face was filmed quite clearly.
The gang has caused more than £100,000 worth of damage since April. They stole just over £3,000.
Difficult words: angle grinder (machine used for cutting metal), pickaxe (large tool used for breaking up the ground), footage (video).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
