Police warning after spate of Derby lead thefts

Police are warning residents in a Derby neighbourhood to be vigilant after a series of lead thefts.

A police spokesman said six lead thefts had been investigated in the Parliament Street and Churchside Walk areas of Stockbrook in the past week.

PC Kelvin Hannah said most of the thefts happened overnight but so far no-one had been arrested.

He said residents should "secure their property...making sure side gates are locked and using security lights."
