Around 90 attacks targeting the UK’s telecommunications infrastructure have been reported during the coronavirus lockdown.

The incidents, which surged over the Easter weekend, are believed to be motivated by conspiracy theories linking COVID-19 to the deployment of 5G masts.

Derbyshire Police has called for witnesses to come forward over the most recent suspected arson attack, which targeted a mobile mast near Breadsall Hilltop at 2am on Sunday.
