An interruption to Beverley mobiles phone services is starting to be rectified after weeks of frustration, but it could take until the end of August to resume full service after the original mast had to be removed from the grounds of the Beverley Arms because of redevelopment works.  MBNL, which provides the service for EE and Three customers, told Beverley FM that they apologise for any inconvenience caused while they’re working to restore full coverage as quickly as possible. A second new mast has now improved 2G and 4G coverage with 3G expected to be on air by the end of next week. A spokesperson said they’re in negotiation for a third mast but that could take up to 4 months to become operational barring any unforeseen delays. Latest details updated by EE here

The charity behind Beverley based East Yorkshire Foodbank has launched a campaign backed by national TV celebrities, to draw attention to the current food poverty crisis by calling for a hunger-free future. The Trussell Trust told Beverley FM that an increasing number of parents have had no alternative but to visit a food bank to feed their families. It’s estimated that nearly 28,000 East Riding residents live below the poverty line. Full details here.
