Crimestoppers and BT Openreach have launched an appeal for information after damage to a telecommunications network in King’s Cross left nearby businesses and homes without telephone and broadband services.
The attack occurred at separate locations, 30m apart, on the junction of Northdown Street and Pentonville Road at approximately 12.30am on Wednesday, November 18.
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.

“Help us to ensure that these individuals cannot strike again.”
Anyone with information is urged to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or through its anonymous online form at crimestoppers-uk.org
