An attempt by thieves to steal lead from a village church roof was thwarted and they made it away empty-handed.

Police were called on Saturday to St Peter’s Church in Claypole, where would-be thieves tried to remove six panels of lead.

They were unsuccessful but did cause damage to the panels.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on the non-emergency 101 number.
