POLICE are warning people to be extra vigilant and aware of hidden cameras when withdrawing cash from ATM machines.

Officers say a device was recently found attached to a cash machine in Farnworth.

Their advice is to always hide the pin number by covering the view with the other hand and to report to the bank immediately if the card is swallowed by the machine.

No doubt the eastern european crime gangs at it again, so much for our open door policy, obviously crimes like this and worse will happen all to often over here, as they have been for years.

Why do you need to "no"? Presumably it's been removed. The warning is to suggest you look out for any other such devices in the area. You don't need to know.
