The ATM that had been ripped from the wall of a building in the town centre of Bushmills, has been found intact.

The ATM was recovered from a country road near Dunluce Castle on the Antrim Coast Road today and it is believed that they criminals lost it from the getawat vehicle and it fell onto the road.

It was reported to the NIFRS that a vehicle was alight in the diamond area. A Digger and a Tractor and trailer were alight.

The report was received just before 0330hrs BST, when two appliances from Portrush and a Fire officer were dispatched.
The PSNI closed the town centre to traffic firstly to accommodate the fire and secondly to accommodate the investigation at first daylight.
This is though to be the ninth ATM theft in the recent spate across NI.
A short time later another vehicle was burned out at the Craigboney Road near Bushmills. It is believed that both incidents are linked.
