Post by Administrator on Aug 11th, 2021, 10:35pm

Here is a report from the BBC regarding the major fire that broke out at a main transmitter serving part of the north east of England.

All services were disrupted for several hours

"Mast operators, Arqiva, said it had managed to restore TV and radio services for hundreds of thousands of people."
