Village badly connected

Have your say

DOZENS of households have been left without landline telephones or broadband for over two weeks.

The problem is affecting villagers at Wentworth, between Barnsley and Rotherham.

Resident Kevin Proctor said: “Around 80 per cent of households are affected. I am self-employed and need internet and a phone line for work.”

Mr Proctor had complained to BT and Rotherham Council. He has also emailed Wentworth and Dearne MP John Healey about the problem.
