Police meeting over metal thefts
In Cambridgeshire alone metal thefts increased by 170% in 2007. Figures obtained by the BBC, show that metal thieves have been responsible for thefts valued at tens of millions pounds. Police are hoping to crack down on the spate of metal thefts by setting up a nationwide task force to tackle the problem.
School roofs, statues and power lines seem to be some of the most popular targets, costing millions of pounds to replace. In particular copper is becoming one of the most sought after materials, because it is now worth Â£4,000 per tonne; twice as much as two years ago.
