Braintree: School devastated by lead theft
2:00pm Friday 20th September 2013 in News
Staff and pupils have been left “devastated” after lead thieves targeted their school once again.
Thieves caused £500 damage to Beckers Green Primary School after scrambling on to the roof to steal £100 worth of lead.
The holes they left in the roof enabled rainwater to leak into a classroom in the early years department, causing damage to computer equipment.
The thieves also caused damage to one of the school’s wooden benches when they used it to climb onto the single level building.
The school was targeted overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday last week.
