I read in the news today about a spate of burglaries in the Brighton and Hove area, where robbers are choosing not to steal highly desirable items like flat screen TVs and DVD players, but copper pipes and boilers! Yes, no longer do we need to hide our jewellery in a fake baked bean tin, it’s our boilers they’re after now…that’s a pretty big baked bean tin we’re gonna have to get?!

The reason is because the price of scrap metal has soared in recent months, and copper is at a premium right now. I should know, my boyfriend’s a lift engineer and every so often they cash in on some scrap metal from jobs and I get a shiny new present! 🙂

So, people in the Brighton area beware! Lock up your boilers! Looks like there’ll be a high demand for new boilers in Brighton soon!
