Mast protest good for democ­racy

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

MO­BILE phones play an in­creas­ingly im­por­tant part in ev­ery­day life, and to do so ef­fi­ciently they have to be served by a net­work of masts. But that is not to say telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion giants can erect them any­where they please.

So well done to the Longth­orpe res­i­dents who used their demo­cratic right to say no to one in their neigh­bour­hood and whose protest won the back­ing of city plan­ners.
