Letter: Phone mast affects us too

Phone mast in Ilkeston
Phone mast in Ilkeston

I have just read the report in the Advertiser about the proposed permanent EE mast on Field Road (Advertiser, Thursday February 6 2014.)

I am angry about the residents’ comments especially, ‘ The one on the college was further away’. This was, according to them all right that when it was nearer our houses on Whitworth Road, they didn’t care then did they?

These new masts are unobtrusive and safer than they have ever been, and if it is going to be in amongst the trees, what would be wrong with this?

They should be glad that the supermarket is on their side and they will not have

to put up with a car park and its lights.
