Our heritage and lives threatened

SO the Metro’s been hit again by metal thieves.

And not just the Metro – lead from church roofs, bronze statues and plaques, power cables – our heritage, businesses and indeed our lives are threatened by these thefts.

Why not fight greed with greed? Place a “no questions asked” bounty to reward anyone reporting/providing evidence of a crime leading to arrests. A minimum of say £100 plus a percentage of the value of recovered materials ought to do it – there is after all little honour among thieves.
