This is why you shouldn't steal copper cable!
These are the horrendous injuries suffered by a man after he was hit by 22,000 volts while stealing copper cable from an electricity substation.
On the same day that LASN broadcast last week's issue we saw this report.
James Sorby, 22, was burnt so badly burned his daughter was unable to recognise him. He had been trying take cabling from an electricity sub-station in a disused Post Office sorting room in Leeds, West Yorks.
But before he could even touch the cable a massive charge jumped a gap to his body and he suffered severe burns to his face and hands, a weakened heart, lost partial sight in his left eye and lost movement in one of his hands.
