Metal basher

Just read in the paper that...

"New rules coming into effect in December [2012] mean it will soon be illegal for dealers to pay cash for scrap metal"

This will hopefully reduce the more organised allotment break-ins, the ones that pillage a site's sheds in search of spades and other metal tools. The report says that metal to the value of £770 million was stolen last year in the UK, costing the nation perhaps £25-£30m or more to replace.
