Lead Thieves in S6 - A new twist - Water Pipes in outbuildings

Recommended Posts

Seems we've had a spate of lead theft from bay windows in S6 - Wynyard Road and surrounding roads. Just discovered the lead piping in a neighbors outbuilding has been cut and water has been pouring out. Flooded mine and other neighbors garden. Looks like they've used a portable electric saw as cut is very fresh and clean.


Reported to South Yorkshire Police on 101 and to Yorkshire Water.



Might be an idea for folk in this area to pop out and check their outbuildings.


Yorkshire Water will not repair these pipes as they're on private land but will isolate the supply instead.
