Police are hunting two men who tried to rob a cash machine with a stolen dumper truck last night. 

The foiled thieves pinched a truck from a construction site before attempting to drive it into a Tesco ATM in Airdrie, in the early hours of Sunday morning. 

The pair smashed into a bollard before they could hit the machine and fled the scene. 

It is understood no one was injured in the robbery, which occurred at 1.20am on Sunday, 16 February.
