Three arrested after Kent metal thefts

Three people have been arrested in connection with metal thefts in Kent.

Two men from Folkestone were arrested on Thursday after a burglary at Wye College. They have been bailed until 5 December.

A 21-year-old woman is still in custody in Wingham in connection with a separate theft of industrial cabling, said Kent Police.

Insp Angie Hobbs said: "Metal theft is a growing problem nationally because of the current high commodity prices."
