POLICE are appealing for witnesses to theft of lead from a church in Burwash.

Approximately 4x1.5 metres of lead was stolen from the roof of St Bartholomew’s Church in the High Street overnight between Wednesday and Thursday June 27 and 28.

Metal theft has been highlighted recently with the introduction of Operation Tornado, a nationwide initiative aimed at making it easier to trace sellers of stolen metal and disrupt the activities of those dealers who operate illegal businesses.

Any witness or anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting serial 1042 of 27/6.

Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
