Lincolnshire town residents warned after lead thefts

Police are warning residents in a Lincolnshire town to be vigilant after a second series of lead thefts.

Several homes in The Sidings area of Long Sutton had lead stolen from the exterior of properties in the past few days, Lincolnshire Police said.

At beginning of April, a number of properties in the London Road area had lead stolen from above bay windows.

Officers are asking for anyone with information about the thefts to contact them.

In several of the earlier cases, some of the lead was rolled up but the intruder was disturbed before it could be removed, police said.
