we have had a lot of trouble in the north west with thefts of copper
Question Author
Does anyone know what kind of voltage these thieves are risking being electrocuted by and how much moneys worth of copper they are taking as I can understand taking big risks for big profits but risking your life for a couple of hundred does'nt seem to equate in my head.

Spokesperson from United Utilities on R4 said substation thefts averagejust £30-40 worth of copper.

Several people have died trying it in the past couple of years and they risk starting life threatening fires in people's homes when appliances overheat.
