pikeys again

Theiving pikeys have again ripped out another section of virginbroadband cable in our area causing now the third time in two weeks for half the area to be without telly ,phone ,internet ,for over 24 hours ,,seems they wrap a chain around a main cable/box then drag it with a j.c.b. until it snaps ,ripping out metres of cable ,just goes to show how retarded they are its a fibre optic cable and not copper so worthless .,,funny though when we reported the fault the company via our mobile said we have checked and the fault seems to be at your house, well send out an engineer ,,shes a retard too .
