A man has been arrested in connection with a cash machine explosion.
The 34-year-old, from the Bradford area, was arrested in Leeds on Wednesday afternoon and remains in custody in Darlington.
The blast took place at a cash machine outside the Heron Foods store in Cockerton Green, Darlington, at 1.40am on Wednesday.
