Photograph shows why more than 150 properties in Old Buckenham …

16:22 10 March 2016 Anthony Carroll 1 The damaged BT box in Old Buckenham after a crash which has left homes in the village without phones and internet. Archant Norfolk Photographic 2016 More than 150 homes in a Norfolk village have been left without the internet or phone lines for a week after a vehicle crashed in to an exchange box. A total of 152 homes in Old Buckenham, near Attleborough, have been without the services since the accident happened off the B1107 on the night of Thursday, March 3.

BT says it hopes repair and replacement work on the cabinet will be completed by Monday. In the meantime Old Buckenham Parish Council is asking residents to check on elderly neighbours and friends if they do not have access to phones to call emergency services. Parish council chairman Steve Milner also said there had been a lack of communication from BT over when the cabinet will be repaired.

He said: There has been a lack of information. Luckily we have a resident who has a contact with BT and we are then passing on the information we receive manually, I am concerned there are a lot of elderly vulnerable people in Old Buckenham and their safety position could be compromised if they do not have access to a phone. A spokesman for BT said: Our cabinet has been badly damaged by this road traffic accident on the evening of March 3.

There is a great deal of work for engineers to do to repair the damage to cabling and replace the box. There will be around 150 homes that have lost services due to this incident. We have explored, but has not been possible to get a temporary solution.

It is regrettable when Openreach suffers any accidental damage to its network. Our priority is to restore services to those affected, and we are doing all we can to get this completed as quickly as possible. We are aiming to have this all completed by close of play on Monday, but will of course be doing all we can to get it completed earlier if it is possible.

Air show crash pilot had undiagnosed heart problem « Shropshire Star

One of Britain’s top aerobatics pilot who was killed when his plane crashed during a display was suffering from an undiagnosed heart condition, accident investigators have said. David Jenkins, 61, was flying his Edge 360 plane during a media event to launch the Old Buckenham air show in Norfolk on April 22 last year when he experienced problems. A report by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) found that he crashed after losing control during an “advanced aerobatic tumbling manoeuvre”.

The aircraft entered a spin “at relatively low height” and hit the ground “without any apparent attempt at recovery”, the investigators stated. The AAIB said Mr Jenkins was found to have a “serious and previously undiagnosed heart condition” which “may have affected his judgment”. It is possible he became “incapacitated at a critical stage of the flight”, the report added.

The moment the aircraft began to lose control was caught on camera by a local television crew. Witnesses first thought the manoeuvre was part of the daredevil display until smoke began billowing from the ground. Mr Jenkins was a two-time British advanced aerobatics champion.

He was a member of the Wildcat Aerobatic Team based at Old Buckenham Airfield, near Attleborough, where the event was taking place.

At the time of the crash he was described by friends as “one of the best” and “highly skilled”.
