Video showing the utter devastation caused when a 'huge mob' broke into a Lidl supermarket during a blizzard has emerged.
It appears to show people attempting to crack open a safe using a JCB which police believe was stolen.
A large group of people stand around the safe in the deep snow, the clip shows, and watch on in anticipation as blows are rained down using the digger's bucket.
The obliteration of the roof of the shop, which was broken into using a digger, can also be seen.
Clips posted on social media allegedly show looters inside the shop and people leaving with bags filled with stolen items while young children were present.
Nine people were arrested by gardai in connection with the incident on Friday afternoon in Tallaght, Dublin.
