South London customers of Talk Talk and Sky were left without internet after rats chewed through fibre cables.

The problem was first reported on Thursday evening and was said to be caused by rodents.

Both firms apologised to their broadband clients after rats destroyed essential hardware.

Sky Help Team tweeted this morning: “South London. Work continues on repairing broken fibre cables. We have identified the cause of the fault, to be the work of rodents.”

Sky customers in Tulse Hill, Balham, Brixton, Nine Elms, Streatham, Dulwich, Vauxhall, South Clapham, Forest Hill and Battersea were affected.

TalkTalk described itself as “really sorry”.

Sky Help Team tweeted at 10.30am to say the issue had been resolved.

“Resolved: South London. Customers will now be able to get online & make/receive calls. We apologise for any inconvenience caused,” it said in a tweet.
