BT wants to remove the box from Moorhouse Grove, next to the Premier store, but ward councillors are asking if the locals want to retain it.

Coun Matthew Morley wrote: “Unfortunately there’s been some mix up with the consultation and we’ve only just been informed.

“If it cannot be kept as a phone maybe residents would consider taking ownership and possibly turning into a little library.”
