CLA u r ges ban on cash sales of scrap.

CLA Wales director, Ben Underwood, said stolen metal was being traded too easily in the scrap metal industry.
"This campaign has generated an unprecedented response from our members in Wales, who have had to deal with anything from the theft of live electric cable to remote properties being stripped of plumbing," he said.
"Even the statue of Isambard Kingdom Brunel was taken from its plinth at Neyland," he said.
