Fire disrupts telecoms in Manchester

There was/is a major fire in tunnels underneath Manchester yesterday which seemed to only affect BT phone lines. BT said it would affect a wider network and yesterday we were unable to receive calls at home although we were able to make them. Same thing at the doctors. Apparently the pharmacy opposite the doctors and the job centre had no phones or data lines either. Fortunately our broadband access was not affected 🙂

    No doubt emperor Tony will be making a statement soon linking this to Al Queda, and thus allowing David Plonkett to implement his emergency powers.
