Lamont aims a swipe at T-Mobile

LOCAL MSP John Lamont has criticised T-Mobile’s decision to close a base station at Newcastleton.

Despite complaints from residents and Mr Lamont urging the mobile phone company to reconsider, the village is losing the network. He stated: “I’m very disappointed they decided not to listen to the concerns. This seems to be a purely financial decision, and Newcastleton is losing out because of its rural location.”
