East Kirkby business park targeted by copper thieves

Copper thieves have stolen £40,000 worth of piping from a Lincolnshire business park.

The piping was cut from a building used by AE Lenton at East Kirkby Business Park over the weekend.

Police have asked scrap metal dealers in Lincolnshire to report large amounts of piping being offered to them over the next few weeks.

Thefts of metal including copper, lead and manhole covers are increasing across the county, police said.
