#445426 - 20th Nov 2010 9:48am Stanley Dock robbed by gang of cable thieves

A GANG of thieves diced with death when they tunnelled under the site of Liverpool’s famous Heritage Market to steal a kilometre of cabling from the docks.

It is thought the crooks spent days cramped into the drain silos that run under Stanley Dock, stripping out cabling and wires carrying thousands of volts bit-by-bit.

They went well-prepared with miners helmets, chainsaws, voltage testing machines and other specialist equipment before causing an estimated £400,000 worth of damage and leaving much of the huge site without power.

The only area of the dock to escape was the site of the Heritage Market, which runs off a separate sub-station to the surrounding warehouses and was set to open as normal this weekend.

Businesswoman Kate Thompson is the leaseholder for the entire site – which was recently used for filming next summer’s Hollywood comic book blockbuster movie Captain America.

When she took a call during a trip to London last Sunday that the power was off in the dock, she thought the solution would be a simple one.

“It’s 1,000 metres of cable and it brings the power in for the entire site. They’re lucky they weren’t killed."

Lucky for them maybe. Personally it would have done us all a favour.
IMVHO it sounds like an inside job?

If it was copper Cable, the reason may have been to sell it on as scrap!
