London , Mon, 30 Apr 2012 ANI

London, Apr 30 (ANI): Metal thieves in the Czech Republic are said to have dismantled an entire 10-ton bridge and more than 650ft of track.

The gang reportedly arrived at a depot in Slavkov, in the east of the country, with forged paperwork claiming that the footbridge over the disused railway track had to come down.

A Railways spokesman, Pavel Halla, said the cost of the theft was worth millions.

"The thieves said they had been hired to demolish the bridge, and remove the unwanted railway track to make way for a new cycle route," the Telegraph quoted him as saying.

"It was only after they had gone that checks were made and we realised we'd been had. The cost of replacing the bridge will run into millions," he added.
