Council ‘phones down

ANGUS Council has reassured residents that they are now accessible following technical problems this morning (Monday).

Over the course of the morning there were issues contacting various departments of Angus Council, one person who did not wish to be named contacted the Arbroath Herald about the problem.

He said: “I have been trying for over an hour to contact Angus Council, both the recycling number which is also the new number for Arbroath and for the Forfar number.

“Sometimes I’m getting the line’s engaged and then sometimes I’m getting the line’s faulty, I’ve even tried calling Care and Repair.”

At around 2 p.m. today a spokesperson for Angus Council was able to confirm that there had been a problem with the telephones which had since been resolved.
