There was nothing of major value inside, according to staff.

Cracks from the raid have gradually got bigger throughout the morning and there are concerns that the structure, one of two kiosks, could collapse.

The electricity supply to the kiosk has been switched off and Yorkshire Water will be turning off the water supply this morning.

Cracks in the kiosk have increased in size overnight.

Contractors think that the building is damaged beyond repair and will be knocked down if does not collapse by itself.
