The man left the scene shortly after realising he was being recorded on CCTV.

PCSO Christopher Brabrook, from the Royston and Royston Rural Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: "Thankfully, the roof on Church of St Faith is protected by security cameras which stopped the suspect from removing even more lead.

"If anyone has any information that may help our ongoing investigation, please don't hesitate to get in contact."

On two occasions this month, lead was also stolen from the roof of St Mary's Church in Whaddon.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PCSO Brabrook via email at christopher.brabrook@herts.pnn.police.uk, or to report information online at www.herts.police.uk/Report.
