      Police in Salford are appealing for witnesses following a burglary at a Co-op in Orsdall.
      At around 5.10am on Friday 11 September 2020 police were called to a report of a burglary at the Co-op on Ordsall Lane, Salford.
      Officers attended and enquiries established that three men wearing face coverings had attempted to steal a cash machine from the store, causing damage to the shop front.

      Police say that no injuries have been reported.
      So far no arrests have been made and enquiries remain ongoing.
      Police Constable Christopher Hatton of GMP's Salford Division, said:
      This is not the first time that the store has been targeted by thieves, in min December 2019 a Limousine was used to ram raid the shop not long after it opened.
