TELEPHONE lines in the London Colney area which were disrupted by the theft of underground cabling last week are up and running again.

Following the theft of 250 metres of underground cable from a BT box in Colney Heath last Tuesday (16), nearly 300 customers in the surrounding area lost their telephone and internet connection for up to four days.

Following complaints from those affected, BT engineers were called to the site on Friday (19) morning and by the evening almost all those residents affected had their telephone line back, save a couple of customers in the Bowmans Green area.

County councillor for the Colneys Cllr Chris Brazier said that he was disappointed with the police's response to the incident: "One of the residents in my ward saw two men fiddling with a BT box last week and despite reporting it straight away, the police have still not checked it out almost a week later.
