Cogan Primary School – once again the victim of lead thieves

A gang of lead thieves has – yet again – stripped a flat roof at Cogan Primary School – the second time the school has sustained such an attack

The latest raid happened late last night or in the early hours of this morning and  was discovered when the staff came on duty this morning.
