Following a number of recent thefts on local caravan sites police are warning residents to be wary of metal theft in the area.

Christopher Wood (Support, PCSO NC51 for Ingoldmells & Chapel St Leonards, Ingoldmells Station) said: “we have recently received reports of thefts of metal outside taps (usually made of brass) and also metal water meters.”

“Not only does this create expenditure to put right, but it is also very inconvenient for the victims.”, he added.

Although previously the thefts have taken place on caravan sites police advise to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to Lincolnshire Police.
