Report metal theft to police

TWO neighbours had scrap metal taken from their gardens in Carlisle Close, Grantham, recently.

Kay Poulter wants people to be wary. She said: “I put some metal bed railings up at the top of the garden. I was going to use them by the fence. My neighbour saw a man walk up the drive and take the metal.”

Police spokesman James Newall urged people to report this type of crime. He said: “Call us immediately on 101 if you see anyone going into gardens taking scrap metal. We treat metal theft as a priority.”
