It was the same method as raiders used in October on a cashpoint outside Matalan in Darlington.

The Heron Foods store, which is close to a busy roundabout, was closed and its front cordoned off after the theft.

Components from the cash machine were strewn on the floor, but there was much less obvious damage to surrounding structures than the previous blast at Matalan.
