8:30am Wednesday 31st July 2013 in News
Police are appealing for witnesses after thieves tried to steal lead from a church roof.
The thieves climbed onto the roof of the Church of St Thomas More in Sutton Road, Seaford, late on Thursday, July 25 or early on Friday, July 26.
A quantity of lead was rolled up but not removed and the damage caused to the church is estimated to be around £1,000.
A spokesman for Sussex Police said: “This sort of incident is new to Seaford, although like everywhere we have previously had a number of thefts of scrap metal.
“The public are our eyes and ears.
“Don’t be fooled into thinking that because activity is happening during the day that it must be legitimate. Often that’s what the thieves want you to think.”
Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 497 of 25 July or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
