Plans to close public phone boxes

People living in west Cumbria are being urged to act to save 25 phone boxes which are under threat.

BT plans to close the booths across Copeland, many in rural areas, where mobile phone signals are limited.

But Copeland council said no decisions had yet been made and it was preparing a letter of objection to send to the Secretary of State.

Councillors are hoping to include comments from local people and urged them to have their say.
