Regan Hook, regional manager for Crimestoppers in London, said: “Damaging the telecommunications network in this way was not only reckless but dangerous and someone could have been hurt.
“There are people out there who know who is responsible and I would urge you to contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
“We don’t take personal details and we can’t trace calls or information given online. We don’t want to know who you are, just what you know.
