Godstone Green sports club flooded after tank thefts

A Surrey sports club has been flooded after thieves stole two copper water tanks from the building.

Surrey Police said the tanks were stolen from Godstone FC in Godstone Green at some point between Sunday and Thursday.

The cost of replacing the tanks and repairing the clubhouse is estimated to be about £5,000.

Det Con Kerry Akehurst said: "This burglary will have a significant impact on the community.

"The football club is a focal point for many people, not only those living in Godstone.

"Lots of people will be affected and football games may have to be cancelled as a result."
