Orange Mobile Network Suffers Failure

The Orange mobile network on the islands is working again.

The company say they had problems yesterday with an equipment failure at the Telegraph mast.

Radio Scilly took calls from listeners who were unable to make calls and texts or access voicemail. Some visitors quizzed Liam Herring at the Tourist Information Centre over their lack of phone access.

Orange say that engineers have resolved the issue and want to apologise to all those affected.
