Residents fight phone mast bid

(Liverpool Echo Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)TELECOMMUNICATIONS giant T-Mobile is seeking planning consent for a mobile phone mast disguised as a pine tree at leafy Lymm, near Warrington.

But the proposal for the 60ft high mast at Sow Brook Pumping Station, in Lymmhay Lane, has not persuaded local residents.

Nearly 20 people have lodged objections and Lymm parish council is also opposing the scheme.

They claim the mast and associated antennae and equipment cabin would be out of character with an area used by young people for leisure and could also prove a target for vandals.
