Signature Materials in Northampton

14 Mar 2013

On 13 March, Lord Taylor of Holbeach met Dr Bernie Rickinson at Northampton Guildhall to talk about the Signature Materials project and see the markings on the roof.

Lord Taylor gave the metal markings his seal of approval and said, 'This innovative project will ensure historic buildings, like Northampton Guildhall, are not targeted by metal thieves.'

ITV East Anglia came along to capture the visit which aired on the news the same night. Watch a video of the news item below.

The visit comes just two weeks after the Scrap Metal Dealers Bill received Royal Assent. The Act, which comes into effect later this year, will allow local authorities to suspend or revoke metal trader licences where they suspend illegal activity.
