A man hunt is under way in Monaghan after gardaĆ­ recovered an cash machine stolen from a filling station in Newry. The station was rammed by a mechanical digger.
One man in his 20s was arrested after an ATM was found in a van in Drumass, Inniskeen, Co Monaghan on Friday morning while two others fled on foot.
Considerable structural damage was caused to the business on the Camlough Road when an ATM was stolen overnight.

Detective Constable Sarah Lyttle said heavy machinery was
stolen from a building site in the area at around 3.30am.
It was then used to remove the ATM machine from a wall of the filling station.
The machinery was subsequently set on fire, blocking the road, which was closed off while police inquiries got under way.
Newry and Armagh Ulster Unionist MLA Danny Kennedy condemned the attack on the garage near Bessbrook.
“This is the second similar attack in six years on a well-respected family run business,” he added.
