Lead thieves caught on camera raiding listed Brighton building

Posted On 17 Jan 2018 at 9:26 am

Police are appealing to the public to identify the two men in the picture after a large quantity of lead was stolen from Grade II* listed Patcham Place.

The lead was taken from the roof of the 18th century building in London Road, Patcham, on 26 November. However the owners, KSD, did not become aware and report the theft to police until December, when heavy rain flooded the building.

Among other things, KSD provide roofing services.

If you know who the two men in the footage or have witnessed any suspicious behaviour in this area please report online or call 101 quoting reference 688 of 11/12. Alternatively, you can visit the Crimestoppers website or contact the independent charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.

      The Lead was actually stolen on the 26th not the 5th. KSD only found out when it rained and flooded the building.
