A 'significant amount' of lead has been stolen from the roof of a church in Rollesby.

Police have appealed for witnesses, after thieves took lead from the south facing roof of the Church of St George on Fleggburgh Road in the village.

The theft happened at some stage between 9pm on Monday, April 3 and 11am on Tuesday, April 4, with a police spokesman saying a significant amount of lead was stolen.

The church dates back mainly to the 14C, but has the base of a 12C round tower. It then underwent a major restoration in the 19C.

It is a Grade II listed building and was first listed on September 25, 1962.
