Pictures show the aftermath of car ploughing into telephone pole

Pictures show the extent of the damage caused after a car crashed into a telephone pole and than rolled onto its roof on Staplers Road in Newport. A number of customers have been left without broadband and telephone services after the carrier pole was struck, damaging the aerial cable that feeds a number of nearby farms and properties.

Openreach engineers have been on-site for the past couple of days with a pole cat in an attempt to restore the service.
