The mast set on fire a couple of weeks ago when some work was being done on the transmitter and fully burned it out. Currently a 300m exclusion zone around it because they're not sure if it'll fall down or not. Affecting TV, DAB and FM radio in the region.

They put up a couple of small 50ft ones and were hoping to get a temporary 260ft one up by the weekend but it's been delayed by planners as it's a site of special scientific interest.

Yes my Dad over in the uk in that area was pulling his hair out, thought his TV had died on him until he found out about the fire.
