Recent upgrades to 4G in the Ballymena area have caused some people to lose TV reception.

It is understood that many people in the north end of the town have been affected. It would seem that the frequency upgrade work carried out on a mast near to Ballymena Showgrounds affected freeview reception.

We understand that those with sky dishes were unaffected.

Now a free emergency number has been issued for those experiencing problems.

It is 08081313800. Those contacting the number can arrange for an engineer to call and attach a filter device to their system. The service if free.
