Crooks bungle ‘Mission Impossible’ robbery

CLUMSY crooks used a disc cutter to slice their way through a shop roof, but failed in their bid to escape with cash.

In a bungled Mission Impossible-style raid, the crooks clambered onto the roof of the Co-op late store on Chain Lane before trying to carve entry into the shop.

They then attempted to smash open a stand-alone ATM machine at the rear of the store but only succeeded in activating an alarm.

It is understood the raiders then made a hasty escape, but left the cutting device on the roof of the shop.
