German bank robbers have blown up a bank and damaged nearby cars and building in a comically inept attempt to make off with a cash dispenser.
Seeing this story of the ham fisted attempt by thiefs in Germany who blew up a bank to get at an ATM, which survived, made me think of John Shepherd-Barron, the ATM inventor who passed away last week. I wonder if he's sitting on a cloud somewhere as amused
My first thoughts though, and probably that of every Brit who revelled in the 1969 film the Italian Job, are Michael Caines character Charlie Croker who said the immortal line "you're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off".
