Tesco Sidcup superstore hit by late night copper piping theft
THE Tesco superstore in Sidcup was hit by a metal theft last night with copper piping taken from the roof.
Between midnight and 12.30am the suspect, or suspects, climbed onto the roof and cut away a quantity of piping.
The copper was later found in a nearby field at the rear of the shop. It is thought whoever took it was intending to come back for it later.

"We are helping the police with their investigation, and working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.
"We apologise to our customers for any inconvenience this has caused.”
