POLICE in Sheffield are investigating an increase in reports of the attempted theft of metal from city centre buildings.

Officers have been informed of a number of incidents where offenders have tried to steal lead from buildings on Carver Street at night.

The City Centre Safer Neighbourhood Team is looking at the issue as a policing priority.

It is due to report back to local residents and businesses at the next Partners and Communities Together meeting, where police, partners and locals discuss issues of concern and the best way of tackling them together.
