Thieves steel £100,000-worth of scaffolding from Keepmoat site

19 Oct 11 Thieves have made off with £100,000 of scaffolding from a Keepmoat building site in Hull.

The break in occurred on a housing development at the former Amy Johnson School site, according to the Hull Daily Mail.

The thieves escaped with five pallets of scaffolding and siphoned diesel from vehicles.

Police believe a forklift truck from the site was used to lift the pallets on to their getaway vehicle.

Some 600 homes are planned for construction on the site.

A Keepmoat spokesman said: "The site does have a security presence at all times. Someone is there 24/7.

"But it is a large site. We are having a look at the security arrangements in light of what has happened.

"Although it has been an inconvenience, this theft will not affect the building programme."
