Mesh phone system sabotaged by burglars
What doesn't kill us makes us stronger
UK PC builder Mesh Computers has fallen victim to burglars for the second time this year.
But the intruders, who forced their way into the outfit's London offices on Wednesday night, seem to have been more intent on vandalism than theft.
Wires in the company's telephone system were cut, which resulted in the phone lines being completely disabled yesterday. BT engineers are today still trying to fix the problem.
Nothing was stolen during the break-in.
"There appears to be a bit of a pattern here," said Mesh marketing manager John Hendrick. In January Mesh was targetted in a similar break-in.
"In both cases, clues left by the intruders indicate that theft was not top of their wish list," he added. "But these challenges make us stronger."
Mesh's offices in Leeds and Edinburgh were unaffected by the break-in, and will be taking calls until the London phone system is fixed. ®
