blame the chinese refrigerator market for that one, driving up the value of scrap copper and brass, a chap i know had a drum of high voltage underground cable pinched from his yard, he was going to use it to put a new workshop in and had it stored in a padlocked container inside a compound with locks and cameras and the beggars still pinched it, poor old manxman didnt stand a chance against them. a real shame to see the old girl go
