A plan by robbers to dig a tunnel leading to the vault of a Monte dei Paschi di Siena bank in Naples would have been meticuolous had it not been for one thing: they dug right next to a police station.

The four-metre tunnel pierced a cement wall and went directly to the bank vault, Napoli Today reported on Tuesday.

But despite what appeared to be a sophisticated feat, the would-be bank robbers made the fatal error of digging their tunnel just a few steps away from a police station.

Police spotted the unusual activity and alerted the bank director, who secured the area, Napoli Today said.

The discovery came just a day after Naples police uncovered another tunnel in the city, leading to a building society.
