Churches across the country are being blighted by the theft of lead and copper from their roofs. For criminals keen to cash in on the high price of scrap metals, places of worship often make an obvious target.
With a rapidly growing problem that’s causing untold distress to our parish communities and it’s reaching epidemic proportions - 2011 was the worst year on record for the number of metal theft claims from churches.
Churchwarden Clive Barnes shows damage caused by lead being taken from roof at St Cuthbert's Church. Acting church warden Clive Barnes said: “They came in May and July. They’ve taken lead from the roof and water has seeped in. It’s disheartening. It will put our insurance premiums up. We will have to find several thousand pounds to pay for security. That money should be used to help people and keep the church doors open.” Lytham Stannes Express.
Its a fact the last 4 years, metal theft from churches have now exceeded £25m and rising, with over 9,000 + claims.
It’s not all about replacing the materials that is the problem its also the cost as well, the resultant damage that is carried out, holes in roofs causing leaks and ripped stonework away from pinnacles & towers.
