Sussex Police

POLICE believe lead stolen from a church which will cost £50,000 to replace was by a gang of professional thieves.

Thieves struck overnight on Sunday, June 13 at St Albans Church in Frant, near Tunbridge Wells, stealing a “significant amount” of lead from the roof.

The value of the lead, combined with the cost to replace and complete the repairs, is expected to be nearly £50,000 for the 200 year old church.

Sussex Police believe the theft is connected to another lead theft in Lewes recently, as well as another church targeted in Kent.
