Storm Barra Update 2 07/12/21
Bad weather conditions caused by Storm Barra meant that ice formed quickly on the temporary Bilsdale Mast earlier this afternoon. As a result, a safety measure to protect antennae on the temporary mast was tripped, which then caused a temporary loss of service. The outage lasted for 53 minutes before an engineer at the site was able to fix the issue and restore services.
With high winds and sleet on the moor top our team of engineers remain vigilant near the site and is monitoring the situation closely. We ask that viewers do not retune their TVs and apologise for any disruption caused.
