Police in fresh plea over phone vandals.
More than 1,000 people's phones were cut off after vandals went on the rampage, severing cables and damaging junction boxes across Rugby and Dunchurch.
The culprits set fire to a junction box in Hollowell Way, Brownsover, and severed an underground cable in Archers Lane.
They also cut wires attached to more than 30 telegraph poles. Hundreds of telephone lines in Dunchurch were not re-connected until yesterday.
Witnesses are asked to ring police on 01788 541111.
