- Tyne Tees
A church in Stockton that has been targetted seven times by thieves has reopened.
St Cuthbert's Church had to close after thieves stole the lead lining from the roof.
It meant the inside of the church had no protection from the weather and was completely ruined.
But people from the village helped to raise more than £40,000 pounds in just a year to fix it.
