Police urge local homeowners to check their roofs if possible.
From Fylde Police – 2 Large bags of roof lead have been retrieved from around the church grounds on St George’s Road in St Anne’s. At present, we don’t know where this lead has come from. Can I ask you all to check if you have any lead missing from the roof of your home/building/business to let us know by calling 101 and reporting it to us?
Lead theft is a serious crime and can cause huge issues for homeowners as this is the material used to stop water getting into your homes, so sometimes you won’t know it’s been removed until it starts to rain heavily. A quick visual check should be enough or use some binoculars.
