Stolen gully tops found in Sandbach


A collection of stolen gully tops (drain covers) have been recovered from a scrap yard in Sandbach.

The ironwork had been dumped outside Sandbach Car and Commercial Dismantlers Ltd on July 5. The owners spotted an abandoned car outside their premises and on further inspection discovered the gully tops. They then reported the matter to local police.

The owner of the vehicle has not yet been found.

The discovery comes just weeks after more than 50 gully tops were stolen from the Crewe area.

Cheshire East Council is urging scrap yard owners and local residents to remain vigilant and report any such thefts or anything suspicious via Highways Operations on 0845 0002 666.

Alternatively, such thefts can be reported to Cheshire Police on 0845 458 0000.

Cheshire East councillor Rod Menlove, Cabinet member with responsibility for environmental services, said:

“I would like to thank the owners of Sandbach Car and Commercial Dismantlers Ltd for reporting the stolen ironwork. I would urge similar traders to be on their guard and report anything suspicious to Cheshire police.

“The theft of stolen gully tops poses a serious danger to drivers and pedestrians. Replacing them comes at a significant cost to the Highways authority.”
