Thieves have stolen lead from the roof of Little Dalby’s church for the fourth time in recent years.

Police say the latest raid, at the Grade 2 listed St James Church, was reported to them on Saturday.

A spokesman said: “It’s believed to have happened sometime between Thursday August 8 and Saturday.

“No arrests have been made and anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting reference 19*422608.”

Just over two years ago, members launched a fundraising drive after lead was stolen from above the south aisle and porch at the church.
