It's Fallen Down!! Aftermath - 31st October 2004

On the evening of Saturday 30-Oct-2004 there was a fire at the Peterborough site.

As a result the mast totally collapsed, falling onto the transmitter buildings and neighbouring fields.

There were no casualties but of course all services from Peterborough went off the air!

By 1720 GMT on Sunday 31-Oct-2004 ntl were providing temporary low-power service of Classic FM and DAB from their nearby Gunthorpe site.
