Church's £250,000 campaign to stop lead thieves stripping roofs

The Church is turning to crime prevention in a bid to fight the increasing theft of lead from its roofs.

In Norfolk, a £250,000 campaign's been launched to install alarms on those churches most susceptible to attack.

The Rt Revd Graham James, the Bishop of Norwich and The Church of England's leading figure in the county, describes the crime as a betrayal of local communities.

While the Police and Crime Commissioner, Lorne Green, is pledging a significant amount of public money to support the project.
