Bilsdale - Off Air!

Post by John Faulkner, Skegness »

UK TV News via Facebook "North Yorkshire Weather Updates" page.

"Has your telly gone off?
Bilsdale mast near Helmsley which provides TV signal for North Yorkshire and the North East has caught fire.
The transmitter sends a signal to approximately 570,000 houses across the region - only viewers who receive their television via Freeview are affected.
Radio services affected include BBC Radios 1-4, Radio Tees & BBC DAB, SDL, North Yorkshire DAB, BAUER Teeside, Digital 1, TFM, Capital, Heart & Classic FM.
Arqiva, which owns the transmitter, has apologised for the inconvenience.
Emergency services confirmed that crews had been sent to the site at around 2pm today (10 August) after smoke was seen issuing from it."

There's a picture too which shows smoke billowing upwards from the base of the transmitter itself.

Edit: This too from the Northern Echo ... https://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/news/ ... ork-moors/
