DISRUPTIONS to telephone lines in London Colney were caused by the theft of underground cabling.

Around 250 metres of underground cable was taken sometime between Wednesday and Thursday, affecting the telephone lines of nearly 300 customers in areas such as Bowmans Green.

Engineers were called to the site this morning (19) to install new cabling and reconnect those affected and, although most people now have power restored, there are still around 30 customers who still do not have a working telephone line.

BT Media Relations Manager for the East of England and East Midlands Paul Hayward apologised for any inconvenience caused and added: "We have been doing all we can to get this work completed as quickly as possible and as long as we don't hit any unforeseen problems we hope to have full service restored today.
