We live in OAKHURST and have had no end of problems with 'no signal' for several weeks now. We have retuned the tv, pulled plugs/Ariel out etc..to no avail. Please advise what is happening? Postcode; SN25 2BP

Tony staples: You should be able to get good reception from either Seagry Court (roughly to the East from your location) or Mendip (roughly South West), which direction does your aerial point? Mendip has recently changed frequencies and may now require a wideband aerial to be fitted if you currently have an older grouped aerial (this can be done free of charge if you don't have satellite or cable - see link below for the Freeview Advice Line).
