Campaigners in Caernarfon are calling on BT to remove public pay phones, which are claimed to be used by ‘druggies’.
The pay phones that are claimed to be a notorious spot for drug users are located near Caenarfon Post Office.
BT have already responded to the claims, by removing the doors and shelving from inside the boxes, in a bid to try and deter people from using them for drug activities. However, BT are refusing to remove the public pay-phones all-together.
Caernarfon councilors and Local MP Hywel Williams, have urged the telecoms giant to reconsider their response.
Mr Williams said:
“My constituents remain concerned these pay-phone kiosks serve as a hotspot for drug related activity and want to see BT take immediate action.”
A BT spokesperson said:
“We have no plans to remove these payphones as calls are regularly made from them.
“We’ve removed the shelves and doors from the kiosks to address local concerns.
“We’d also encourage anyone who spots any criminal activity to report this to the police.”
