Speaking following reports of metal theft from a scrap yard in the Portadown Area Sinn Féin Councillor for the area, Paul Duffy, has urged businesses to be vigilant.

He said:

"It is believed that the incident of theft took place over the weekend. Copper has risen in price recently which makes it valuable to steal.

"I would urge all businesses - particularly scrap yards - to secure yards and premises to make it difficult for thieves.

"I am also appealing to local businesses to immediately report any one calling to yards or premises requesting scrap metal. Details are important including registration of the vehicle, description and name of the suspect."
