Lochmaben Primary School Targeted by Metal Thieves

Lochmaben Primary School Targeted by Metal Thieves

Lochmaben Primary School was once again the victim of metal theft. The school was targeted by individuals who attempted to steal lead from the roof. Unfortunately this is the 7th time this school has been the victim of this type of theft.

Jim Scott, Metal Theft Lead at the Scottish Business Resilience Centre said:

On this occasion the thieves were disturbed by local police officers and the lead was recovered although damage was caused to the roof of the building. These thefts have a significant cost to the local authorities who have to repair the damage and replace the lead. The cost can be significantly more if the theft is not discovered quickly as water damage may cause further damage to equipment within classrooms that become exposed.
