"termite" gangs have been tunneling into a bank in France - the third such occurrence.
Reuters has reported:
Would-be robbers armed with a pneumatic drill dug a tunnel from a Paris subway station into the basement of a bank in the early hours of Sunday but failed to seize any cash or valuables, police said.[SPOILER ALERT]
For those of you who have read the Canon, it sounds like a page directly out of the original stories from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes - notably "The Red-Headed League".
"I could think of nothing save that he was running a tunnel to some other building... The only remaining point was what they were burrowing for. I walked round the corner, saw that the City and Suburban Bank abutted on our friend's premises, and felt that I had solved my problem."As Holmes said in A Study in Scarlet: "Read it up - you really should. There is nothing new under the sun."
