Thieves steal £36,000 of copper in Cambridgeshire

Thieves have taken £36,000 of copper from two Cambridgeshire companies.

Five cages of copper cable were taken from a factory unit off the A14 at Ellington, Huntingdon, between Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.

In a separate incident, copper fittings worth £6,000 were stolen from a building site in Longsands Road, St Neots.

A truck was used to pull the door off a steel container where the fittings were stored some time over the weekend.
