20-11-2014 07:00

This happens in England. A gang steals a digger. The criminals use this digger to steal money. They drive the digger into a shop. There is a cash machine in there.

The criminals tear the shop apart. The digger pulls out the cash machine. They put it on a car. Then the criminals drive away. They leave the digger near the shop.

This happened in England before. This is the fourth robbery with a digger.

Difficult words: digger (a large machine which can move the ground), tear apart (to pull something into pieces with force), robbery (the act of entering a building and taking the money or other things).

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