Thieves caused thousands of pounds worth of damage when they cut phone cables while trying to steal them.

The wires were severed between midnight and 01:00 last Wednesday in Stoneywood, near Denny in Falkirk.

Central Scotland Police said the cables had been cut in several places.

A spokeswoman added: "We are keen to speak to anybody who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously, particularly in the road close to Strathcarron Hospice."
