No More Scrap For Cash
Campaigners across the country are calling for a change in the law surrounding scrap metal.

So far over forty five thousand people have signed the petition including Richmond Council.

They want the Government to make it more difficult for thieves to sell stolen scrap metal to dealers.

It’s following a string of thefts nation wide including bronze statues and war memorial plaques.

Currently dealers pay in cash for any metal they want to buy.

Campaigners want this changed, so scrap can only be paid for by cheque or directly into the seller’s bank account.

This would force thieves to use a bank account which would then leave a trail and could be used as evidence by police
