The criminals tunnelled from nearby wasteland and stole cash boxes from the Tesco Express on Liverpool Road in Eccles.

Police believe the well-constructed tunnel took months to build.


In 2012 a similar tunnel was used to raid a cash machine in Fallowfield area of Manchester. At the time police linked it to previous attempts to tunnel under cash machines in the region.

Detectives say they want to talk to anyone seen acting suspiciously on Friday night.


They are particularly keen to to speak to anyone who was seen "covered in soil" in the local area.
