Pipe thieves cause Lea Castle Hospital flood
Metal thieves caused damage estimated at up to £10,000 when they took pipes from a disused hospital.
A bungalow on the site of Lea Castle Hospital in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, flooded when copper water pipes were removed during Wednesday night.
A West Mercia Police spokesman said the site belonged to the NHS and any cost to it was a cost to the public purse.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the police.
