Police in Forth Valley have appealed for information after thieves stole lead from the roof of a church in Laurieston.

Police said the metal was taken from the roof of Laurieston Parish Church in Polmont Road between Thurday 12 January and Sunday 15 January.

Officers said the church was undergoing repair work at the time of the theft.

They said the thieves gained access to the roof via scaffolding which had been erected as part of the work.
