Copper cable valued at roughly £6000 and warning signs were seized as suspected stolen property in a police operation by Dursley and Stroud teams.

The operation saw 20 vehicles checked by police officers, who received additional support from Stroud District Council, the Environment Agency, BT, Western Power and Smartwater, according to Citizen News.

PC Darren Reid told the news provider: "A worldwide dramatic increase in the price of scrap metal has coincided with a vast increase in thefts of such items, in particular copper, aluminum, lead, brass, and bronze."

Mr Reid added that the operation represented just one of a number of tactics that are being used to clamp down the thefts.

Earlier this month, Julian Smith, the MP for Skipton and Ripon, met with the secretary of state for transport in an effort to bring brown signs to Masham.

Mr Smith wants the signage to appear on the upgraded A1 (M)ADNFCR-2754-ID-801240116-ADNFCR
