Lead thefts from church rooves

There has been a rise in thefts of lead from church rooves in and around Sedgemoor.  The thieves seem to operate during the full moon period, and their target churches are ones which are on isolated roads or lanes.  The Police have been informed of all these thefts but there has not been much action.  Not only is it the damage caused and the value of the lead but in most cases the water ingress and associated damage to the priceless interiors.

If you notice anything suspicious please contact the Police on 999 if a crime is in progress or 101 if you notice damage.
