Vodafone signal in Hoylake affected by phone mast fire

THE Vodafone mobile phone signal in Hoylake has been affected by a blaze at one of its 3G masts.

Customers had almost no signal at all over the weekend and are likely to be similarly affected today.

Vodafone said there was a fire at one of its 3G masts in the area on Friday.

A spokesman was unable to confirm whether there was any suggestion of criminal damage.

Engineers are at the mast making repairs to cabling that had been damaged in the fire.

The repair work is listed as a "priority one", said the spokesman.

It's hoped the repairs will be completed later today.
