Lead re­moved from roofs

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

LEAD has been stolen from two sites. Thieves re­moved lead from the roof of the parish church of St Gre­gory and St Martin’s Church in Wye. The theft was not dis­cov­ered un­til the re­cent rain­fall. It is es­ti­mated ap­prox­i­mately 2sqm of lead was taken by the thieves, who would have had to climb a lad­der out­side the church. An­other £2,500 worth of lead was also stolen from a build­ing site in New Road Hill, Ald­ing­ton. The lead was taken from two houses un­der construction and it is be­lieved that the sus­pects used the scaf­fold­ing in or­der to gain ac­cess to the roofs.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the thefts is asked to con­tact South Kent Po­lice on 01303 289180.
