Not sure I'd bother trying with cuttings mike but if the material looks viable, cut pieces about 6" long just below a leaf joint, remove the lower leaves and pop them round the edge of pots of gritty compost, water in and cover with a poly bag and put in a sheltered spot out of direct sun, or in a cold frame if you have one. If the remaining leaves are big cut them in half as there would be too much foliage for the cutting to support. If you get some new growth in a few weeks time then you're fine.
It's infuriating when these things happen- it's why I've enclosed my entire garden with a new fence and I'm putting a blackthorn hedge round the boundary this winter!
