Thousands of listed buildings damaged by crime: English Heritage


Thousands of historic listed buildings in England are being damaged by crime every year, English Heritage fears.
Researchers surveyed 609 owners in October and November last year and their findings suggest almost a fifth of all sites - some 70,000 buildings - could have been harmed in 2011.
Metal theft was the most common crime, with churches most at risk.
English Heritage chief executive Simon Thurley said irreparable damage meant "centuries of history will be lost".
