Cut Cable Cuts Business

A hand full of businesses in Central Road have lost their internet and telephone services due to a cable theft on Saturday morning.
Notice at Santander

Both NatWest and Santander, lost their services at around 11:30 Saturday morning as copper cable was cut and stolen in broad daylight from busy Central Road.

As one of the ladies in a very empty NatWest told the blog, there have been so many road works around the area that people dressed as workmen and taking cable just wouldn’t be noticed.

BT have made it a priority to fix the cable and hope to start tomorrow (Tuesday) morning although they have had to apply for planning permission to do the necessary digging. It is likely to take at last half a day. It is hoped then that services will be up and running again tomorrow afternoon at best.

Thanks to blog reader Sue who first spotted this (or at least let me know!).  She asks: "Along the same line do you think Papa Johns would give me loads of pizza if I turned up outside with a moped with a box on the back?"
