A disgruntled customer has gone into battle with a mobile phone giant because he says he is unable to make and receive calls when trees are in leaf.

Kieron White is locked in a dispute with telecommunications firm O2 for the second year in a row, blaming the trees in his home village of Tickhill for his lack of mobile phone signal.

Mr White says he and other local residents have complained that when trees are in leaf in the area in the spring and summer, customers are left without a signal and phone service.
