Funding for National Metal Theft Taskforce to be Cut?

So much for that initiative then, government funding for the police's National Metal Theft Taskforce is due to finish next month. The taskforce, which is led by British Transport Police, was set up in 2012 to tackle metal thefts, primarily from railway lines but also lead from church roofs. Since then, there has been a 70% drop in metal theft from England's churches. They never got round to creating one to tackle theft of metal objects from archaeological sites. That bit of the national heritage is very low priority.
