BT have issued a statement after hundreds of residents in Lincolnshire have been left without phone or internet access for a week. It could be several more days before they're switched back on.

BT, who are replacing stolen underground cabling in the village of Eagle, say around 200 properties have reported faults since last Tuesday. Businesses say the situation has been a nightmare - leaving them without email, and unable to contact customers.
