Power failure

We would once again like to apologise for the break in transmission between 9am & 11:40am. This was due to a power failure affecting Market Weighton including our studio centre on the High Street and was beyond our control.  We still have issues regarding some of our equipment, hence some of our internet streams may be unavailable.
