Island telephone fault repaired
A temporary fault that left thousands of telephones in Guernsey unavailable has been corrected.

The fault, which affected numbers beginning with the digits seven, two-zero and two-four, was repaired early on Monday evening.

Network operator Cable & Wireless said a power fault caused the problem to the island's telephones.

While the phones were out of action, emergency calls were diverted through Jersey's telephone system.
