In our apartment block in Barking thieves cleverly got round to stripping lead off the roof over the weekend. The police came round but no luck in capturing the people involved. I spoke to an official source who confirmed this was by no means an isolated phenomena. And who confirmed it was due to the current high price for lead – used in the manufacture of bullets for example.
Thankfully a lead-free bullet which is less harmful to the environment has been developed been BAE. I think I’ll drop Mark Thomas a line, it’s dead funny.
