A reward of up to £1,000 has been put up for information regarding an attack on the communications network in Medway which left local homes and businesses without phone and broadband services.
Crimestoppers and national network business Openreach, are appealing for information following the attack in the early hours of Wednesday.
It happened along the A2045, Walderslade Woods, under the Robin Hood lane footbridge between the hours of 12:30am and 1:30am.
Openreach engineers worked as quickly as they could to restore services to those customers that were effected.
Crimestoppers, said: "We are disappointed to hear of this incident, not just because of the impact it has on the local community, but because the crime is so senseless.”

"If you saw anything suspicious along the A2045 or the surrounding area during the early hours of Wednesday morning then please do not hesitate to call Crimestoppers and help us to bring the people responsible for this crime to justice."
