The article reports that the British Transport Police (BTP) officers have seized suspected stolen metal worth more than £700,000 from New Haden Metals in Cheadle. The BTP said the haul, which included 350 tonnes of rail track as well as cables and other metal, was the largest such seizure ever made in Britain. According to Tony Nugent of the Organised Crime Unit, with the high price of metals on world commodity markets, metal and cable theft has become a significant problem for the rail industry, utilities and telecommunications providers.
