Thieves targeted St George’s Church, Rollesby, Great Yarmouth earlier this month, and the local police are appealing for information about the theft

The thieves struck overnight between 9pm on Monday April 3rd and 11am on Tuesday April 4th  and stole lead from three quarters of the south-facing flat roof. They drove through the graveyard, which made the crime even more of an intrusion into village life
Anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area between the dates stated, or anyone with information, should contact PC Gary May at Caister Police Station on 101
The incident did, however, stir up community spirit in the village, with residents rallying in support, and scaffolding and tarpaulins being erected without charge within 24 hours
