Fields littered with 'stolen' cables

Local residents have contacted alderleyedge.com regarding the large amounts of cables which have been dumped the fields between Alderley Edge and Nether Alderley, adjoining the railway line.

One local resident said "It looks like someone has been helping themselves to the copper wires from the line and removed the copper core leaving lots of the outer insulation in the fields.

"The fence to the railway line has also been cut, so is now unsecure, again presumable to move the wires from the railway line to the field."

We have contacted both Network Rail and Cheshire Police, to enquire whether a theft has ben reported, but as yet have not received a response.
