Appeal after 30 Falkirk drain covers taken

Thieves in the Falkirk area stole 30 drain covers in just three days, police have revealed.

The covers were taken between 5 and 7 September from roads in Airth, Larbert, Camelon, Falkirk, Denny and Bonnybridge.

It is thought rising scrap metal prices have led to an increase in thefts of the cast iron covers across the UK.

Central Scotland Police has appealed to anyone who noticed suspicious activity to contact them.
