Local MP Katy Clark has written to Ofcom requesting that they urgently look at the performance of the Rothesay transmitter which provides the digital Freeview signal to televisions along the north coast and on Cumbrae.

The MP for North Ayrshire has been contacted by constituents highlighting a number of occasions this year where they have been left with no television service due to signal problems.

Ms. Clark said "It is completely unacceptable that viewers in Largs, Millport and Fairlie should be without digital television signal for hours at a time. Unfortunately no-one has been willing to take responsibility up until now as when those who have been affected have sought answers they appear to have been given different stories depending on who they have approached."
