Metal thieves exporting scrap from east of England

More than £500k of stolen metal has been seized in a special operation at ports in the east of England.

The joint police and UK Border Agency initiative is targeting organised crime gangs who are selling scrap abroad.

It comes ahead of a change in the law banning cash payments for such material.
