    Great Escapade nets tunnellers thousands

    In something reminiscent of 'The Great Escape' movie, thieves in Salford, Manchester, have spent months digging and fortifying a 50 ft tunnel. They used it to break into a superstore and steal 'tens of thousands' from a cash machine.

    I just heard on the radio the amount is 80,000 (about $132,000).

    The tunnel looks pretty professional to me. I suppose if they spent four months digging, it works out at 20,000 grand per month of work they have 'earned'. When they are caught, they are going to find out they've also earned a few years in prison for each month of digging too....
