Suffolk churches vandelised by metal thieves

Due to the increase in copper and lead prices churches have become a vital target for metal thieves.

Disgustingly in one night alone at a church in Suffolk thieves stole an entire section of roof completely of the lead covering – weighing  an estimated six tons. The vicar there is upset about this and has been told it will cost at least £20,000 to replace!

Reverend Leonard Payne, told media: “If this had been up to a £30,000 robbery of a bank there’d be the police crawling all over the place – the problem is they’re still dealing with it as a theft of scrap metal.

“Well it’s not, it’s far more serious than that.”
