Lead Thieves Are Operating In This Area

Humberside police are calling on local communities to help prevent the theft of lead following 20 reports of lead flashing been stolen from bay windows across South West Holderness
Between Sunday 7th February 2016 and Saturday 13th February 2016, offenders have removed lead from 15 properties in the Hedon, Preston, Skirlaugh and Thorngumbald areas.

Three further reports in Preston overnight from Friday 19th to Saturday 20th February 2016 and two reports of lead thefts in St. Anthony’s Park and St. Nicholas Gate, Hedon.
Humberside Police are supporting residents to help prevent the theft of lead from roofs.

-    All properties are encouraged to consider the installation of lighting, CCTV and/or roof alarms.
-    Anti-climb paint could be used to prevent offenders from gaining a hold of the lead flashing along with painting tar on the underneath of the lead sheets.
-    Use lead nails to fix down the canopy, these can be purchased for a few pence each and could help prevent loss.
-    Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch group with your neighbours
