Lead thieves target Londonderry schools

Thieves have stolen lead from the roofs of four schools in Londonderry.

They targeted Holy Child primary school and St Peter's High School in Creggan, as well as Holy Family primary school and St Eithne's primary school in the Ballymagoarty and Hazelbank areas.

The police said the thefts happened in recent weeks and have asked people to be vigilant.

The PSNI said lead thefts are becoming more common in Foyle and across not Northern Ireland.
