Sutton councillors criticise manhole thieves
More than 50 manhole covers have been stolen in the space of a week in Sutton.

"Gaping holes" had been left in roads in the borough, a council spokesman said.

Almost £2,500 has been spent on plastic covers to replace missing metal ones weighing up to 80kg. These can be sold for scrap at £100 a tonne.

Police have been liaising with local scrap-metal merchants to tell them about the problem.

And they asked anyone who saw a manhole cover being lifted on to a truck or into a van to note the registration number and dial 999.

He’d been forgotten.
