AN O2 phone mast in Ryde, damaged by recent storms has left some Isle of Wight customers without a signal for around a week.

A spokesman for the mobile phone provider said today (Monday) the mast and the roof of the building near George Street suffered extensive damage during the bad weather.

The spokesman said: "Our engineers have now been able to recover our equipment and we are conducting surveys and liaising with local authorities as well as third party suppliers to identify a location for a temporary solution.

"We are working as quickly as we can to restore service to the Ryde area and apologise for the inconvenience."
