Around 600m of BT cable was stolen in Royston Road, Harston, between 10.30pm on Wednesday and 6.30am the following day.

Metal inspection covers were removed by thieves so they could pull the wire from the ground.

“There may have been lorries or vans parked beside the road because this type of vehicle would have been required.”
