They are not probing or investigating the explosion. It says in the article that the thieves blew up the cash machine to get the money. Its not a mystery, the explosion facilitated the robbery.

Dumb Brits don't realize that this could have been prevented by national anti-explosives control legislation. Criminals always obey laws aimed at preventing proscribed activities.
