Heritage metal theft is a hug problem in the UK. Here is part of an awareness raising campaign:
Number 1 - Architectural Metal used on roofs, guttering, lightning conductors etc.
Number 2 Cultural Metal such as objects, coins, jewellery etc.
|They'v used the Staffordshire hoard!|
Number 3 - Public Art such as metallic sculptures and statues
Number 4 - Maritime Metal such as cannon, ingots, condensers etc.
Number 5 - Memorials and Monuments
Number 6 - Street Furniture such as railings, signs, lamps, post boxes etc.
Let us hope that more UK heritage metal thieves get locked up before they do any more damage.
