A CHURCH has seen its roof stripped of lead three times in the past month.

The most recent incident was discovered on Thursday with the other thefts thought to have taken place between May 5 and 10 and around April 9. On each occasion a small quantity of lead flashing was taken from the roof, leaving water leaking through into the church.

Police are investigating whether the thefts are linked and have urged anyone who can assist with their inquiries to come forward.

Pc Kristian Flucker said: “The church staff and parishioners are deeply upset that their place of worship has been repeatedly targeted in recent weeks and we are working closely with the local community to bring those responsible to justice.”
