THEFT of copper wiring in Marbella has doubled over the past two years, costing the town a shocking €56,000 a year to replace.

The wiring, stolen from street lighting by gangs who disguise themselves as electricians, can be sold on for around €1,500 a tonne.

Around 27km of copper wire was stolen from Marbella in 2013, resulting in power cuts across the town.
