Dear British Transport Police,

I am writing to request information on metal thefts in the UK. Please can you send me the approximate cumulative number of reported thefts of metal - such as signposts, roadside cables, rail parts - between:

1) January 1, 2020 - present day (February 2021)
2) January 1, 2019 - January 1, 2020

Ideally covering all parts of the UK, and specifically Yorkshire.

Also can you give me the number of arrests British Transport Police have made for incidents relating to metal theft?

Also can you include a quote regarding the British Transport Polices view of this issue, what they are doing and what the public should do or be aware of.

Yours faithfully,

Hayley Paterson

Dear Freedom of information,

This is fantastic, thank you ever so much.

In light of the responses for the 01/FOI/21/265 request, I do have a follow-up question if able to receive a response please?

* How much in total (January 1, 2019 - February 2021) does the metal theft amount to in pounds please? Is there a way of quantifying this please? E.g. X metal thefts are costing the economy £X amount a year?

Yours sincerely,

Hayley Paterson
