Reward offered after cable theft

A £2,000 reward is being offered to catch thieves who stole power cables that were running a fun fair in Kent.

They struck overnight at the Strand Leisure Park in Gillingham, using hacksaws to chop through inch thick cables.

The fair, which has been run by the same family for four generations, has restored power using borrowed cables.
