Metal thieves strip Nottingham £8m building job

Nottingham police are on the hunt for a gang of metal thieves that struck at a five-storey luxury care home project in the city.

Thousands of pounds worth of copper piping and stainless steel were stolen from Midlands contractor Sandycroft’s building site in West Brighford.

The firm was well advanced on the £8m project to build the 72-bed Trent Bridge care home project at the Loughborough Road and Bridgford Road junction.

Police say the gang struck after workmen packed up on Monday afternoon (7 August) – either during the evening or in the early hours of Tuesday (8 August).

Investigating officer PC Lewis Cragg said: “I would appeal to anyone who may have seen people on the site between these times to contact us with information. The offenders may have looked like builders however; there shouldn’t have been anyone on site during this period.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Nottinghamshire Police non-emergency number 101, quoting incident 209 of 8 August 2023.
