A church in Stockton that has been targeted at least seven times by thieves has re-opened.
St Cuthbert's church in Redmarshall had to close after thieves climbed onto the roof stealing the lead lining.
It meant that the inside of the church had no protection from the weather and was completely ruined.
People from the village helped to raise more than forty thousand pounds in just one year to fix it.
