Missing scrap metal

Recommended Posts

A few years ago in Sheffield-perhaps 1990s- there was a lot of scrap metal that was 'misappropriated, leading to court actions and guilty people (including serving policemen) being incarcerated. As I didn't live in Sheffield at the time-therefore a bit skint on the detail- is there anywhere I can read about this ,  newspaper reports, books etc ?

After a quick search @gluedtopc  said their uncle had the same name.

 

Could ask them if it was the infamous Bill Kelsey?
