Metal thieves have caused thousands of pounds worth of damage to two schools in Hadfield after stripping lead from their roofs.

Offenders targeted St Charles’ Roman Catholic Primary School and St Andrew’s Junior School between 4pm on Friday and 7am on Monday and removed lead flashing from buildings at both sites.

At St Charles’, on The Carriage Drive, classrooms were damaged by water leaking through where the weatherproofing had been taken.
