VILLAGERS have been urged to be on their guard against metal thieves.

The warning was issued at Widdrington Station and Stobswood Parish Council after a number of incidents were reported to police.

Community Beat Manager Paul Dent said: “We have still got a scrap metal theft problem, not just here, but forcewide and countrywide as well. We have been knocking on doors to tell people to make sure that no stuff is lying in yards because we have had crime reported where items have been lifted from unsecure gardens and yards.”
