SOME residents in Little Leigh have been left without Wi-Fi and landlines after a car crashed through a roadside BT cabinet.

Police were called to the scene at the junction of Shutley Lane and Ash House Lane at around 7.40pm on Thursday, April 6.

The car, a black Volkswagen Urban Fox, is believed to have smashed through hedge and come to rest in a field.

There were no injuries reported from the collision.

One resident, who wished to remain anonymous, says the incident has left many out of pocket as repair work is only due to start today, April 14, more than a week later.

They said: "On April 6, a car smashed through a hedge and ended up in a field.

"The car also smashed through the very heavy telephone cabinet like it's not there.

"It is now a week later and has left many villagers out of pocket; especially those that work from home.

"Openreach scheduled works not starting until April 14."

A Cheshire Police spokeswoman said: "Officers were called just after 7.40pm on Thursday, April 6, to the junction of Shutley Lane and Ash House Lane following reports that a black Volkswagen Urban Fox had collided with a hedge.

"A nearby BT box is believed to have been damaged as a result. No injuries were reported."

The Guardian has contacted BT for a statement.
