A SPRAWLING crop of new mobile phone masts is springing up across Sheffield - and coming to a suburb near you, writes Ben Sepencer.

In the last year alone permission has been granted for 22 masts.

Another seven are pending, 29 have been proposed, and seven refused, The Star can exclusively reveal.

Phone companies say the masts are vital for the future of mobile communication.

But thousands of residents, fearful of rumoured health risks and worried by the appearance of the masts, are gearing up for a fight.
