A supermarket is set to stay closed until Saturday after a van was used to try and pull a cash machine from a wall.

ALDI in Mason Street, Horwich, has been closed since Tuesday (October 5) with a sign outside the shop saying: "Store closed until Saturday due to unforeseen circumstances. Sorry for any inconvenience."

ALDI confirmed to The Bolton News that the store would be closed until Saturday but could not comment on why.

Police have now confirmed that there was an attempted burglary at the store late on Monday (October 4) night, which has led to the store closing.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: "We were alerted at 11.20pm on Monday 4 October to a report of an attempted burglary at a store on Mason Street, Bolton.

"Officers attended and established a van had been used to try and pull the cash machine from the wall.

"No arrests have been made and anyone with information should contact police online, if able, or call 101 quoting incident 3463 of 04/10/2021."
