Phones and internet down in Bowers Gifford
HUNDREDS of homes have been left without phones and internet in Bowers Gifford.
A spokesman for BT said: "We have suffered malicious cuts to underground cabling in an apparent attempted theft which is affecting some services in the area at the moment.
"We have working to take out the 800 metre damaged section in very difficult conditions. "We will be working shifts around the clock to install replacement cabling, and then to start the process to gradually restore services to those affected.
"We have had 215 reported faults from people affected. It is possible that it will be into early next week before the final faults are cleared."
