Residents urged to look out for attempts by BT to remove public payphones in strath
Highland Council's convener is calling for eyes and ears on the ground to report any attempts by BT to remove public payphones. Councillor Bill Lobban, local member for Badenoch and Strathspey, said: "It would appear that elsewhere in the Highlands BT has been removing telephone boxes despite being prevented from doing so. "If you see any box in the strath being removed or if you see any form of notice being displayed that the box is due for removal then please let me know as a matter of urgency." A Highland Council spokesperson said: "This may be new public notices appearing in call boxes, or the kiosks actually being removed such as for 'repair'. "These removals are additional to the consultation which recently concluded and may include boxes which were not recently consulted on.
