Six people have died in the act of stealing power cables during the past year, according to the Energy Networks Association (ENA). Chief executive of the ENA David Smith said: “With 700 incidents of metal theft against the energy networks each month, addressing the damage caused by thieves has become a daily challenge.” Mr Smith said current legislation is unfit for purpose. He added: “Only by stopping the means of benefiting from the crime can we stop the mindless acts of criminals.”
