York stome thefts have been undergoing a mini boom this past week in Mossley and Stalybridge

Owners of  properties with York stone paving flags are being warned to be extra vigilant in the coming weeks as houses and pubs in the area have been hit by several thefts.

There have been three incidents  of the valuable stones being removed in thefts from Stalybridge and Mossley in the past week alone.

Older domestic properties and public houses currently seem to be a favourite target of the thieves.

Police are asking owners and neighbours to be extra vigilant in relation to the thefts and for anyone who has not already reported any thefts to do so on 101.
