A MAN accused of stealing lead worth £20,000 from a church roof appeared at Grantham Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

Oliver Tordoff of Wollaton Road, Beeston, Nottingham, is accused of stealing the lead from the church roof in Leadenham.

Tordoff, 23, was told his case was too serious to be heard at Grantham Magistrates Court, due to the estimated cost of the stolen materials.

The theft is alleged to have taken place on the evening of February 24. The case was adjourned until August 6 for committal to crown court.
