LEAD STRIPPED FROM TITUS SALT'S MAUSOLEUM

Sir Titus Salt's mausoleumLead has been stripped from Sir Titus Salt's mausoleum for the third time in four months. This latest attack took place on Saturday night, 8 March and has resulted in a water leak into the interior of the mausoleum so further damage will ensue until a repair can be effected. Trustee Len Morris said: "If it rains, as it has been doing, it could get in to where he is buried. It is not much different to attacking a grave in a graveyard."

Lead has been stolen from other buildings in the locality recently, including Wycliffe Primary School where pupils were delayed from starting school after the Christmas holidays whilst repairs were effected.

A man will appear before Bingley Magistrates, on March 17 on a public order offence and suspicion of stealing lead.
