According to IT Pro the BT exchange in Mayfair, London has been the victim of a well executed heist. The London exchange suffered a break-in with at least £2 million worth of telecoms equipment being stolen.

As a result of the theft, it is reported, thousands of homes and businesses in London were left without Internet access.

Amongst the haul were servers and routers, not the usual far for villains in Guy Ritchie movies. But then this was no movie, although Guy Ritchie does appear to have played a small role along with his wife, Madonna.

Apparently the police are investigating reports that a 40th birthday party, being held right next door, for Guy Ritchie and where he Madonna were partying for much of the night, could have been used as a handy distraction to allow the villains to go undetected.
