    Scrap metal value is huge, they dont care about the damage it can do to cars and pedestrians. Scrap metal dealers should tell them to GTF when they come around with them

    they should booby trap the manholes
    spray soapy water at them when they try to thieve the covers

    seriously though, i don't know why they don't put trackers or something on manhole covers. a little chip to catch the crooks.

    Strange thing is, if someone pinches them and you hit an open one in your car/bike or worse still, fall in, you can sue the Council lol

    there was a case a couple of years when a gang pretended to be repairing a motorway central reservation, but instead dismantled a long section of armco barrier and stole the lot, presumably for scrap metal

    It's a nationwide problem and has been costing thousands for (likely) every local authority in the country, for months.
