Copper thieves hit West Norwood again

Tarpaulins on Nettlefold Hall roof

Tarpaulins on Nettlefold Hall roof

Thieves have stolen much of the copper roofing on West Norwood Library and two weeks ago went as far as stealing from the roof of the chapel  in the cemetery. The buildings have been left very vulnerable to the recent heavy rains and West Norwood Library & Nettlefold Hall are both closed temporarily to dry out and repair the electrics and stage fittings. Events and meetings are transferring to alternative venues. Funerals are continuing to take place in the chapel.

The price of copper has rocketed and thieves are stealing copper where they can find it regardless of the consequences. Thefts of vital signal wiring on railway and tube lines is now the cause of many train delay – as reported in the Evening Standard:

The police have set up  a specialist  unit to investigate thefts of metals such as copper &  lead and the investigation on west Norwood’s copper thieves is ongoing . If anyone has seen any the thieves please contact the police or Crimestoppers at  http://www.crimestoppers-uk.org .
