EXCLUSIVE: Roof Lead Stolen from All Saints Church, Nettleham
Nettleham residents have reacted with anger today upon discovering that a significant amount of lead has been stolen from the church roof.
Thieves, believed to be highly organised, are thought to have struck during the early hours of Monday, 4th July in the tranquil rural village of Nettleham.
Police Community Support Officer, Mrs. Jackie Parker, said:
"It just shows that nothing is sacred any more."
Nettleham Parish Councillor, Giles McNeill, who has responsibility for keeping an eye of the church yard for the parish council's Property Committee said:
"It really is terrible, but with prices for raw materials at all time high it is something we are all having to increasingly be vigilant about. I know that at Fiskerton's church they had three thefts in succession of lead from their roof and one can only hope the same will not be true in Nettleham."
