Disused phone boxes in Southport have finally been taken away to be scrapped.
Many in the mobile phone generations may look at these facilities as relics of the past – or even wonder what they are for.
Years ago they were a lifeline, as a vital way of people keeping in touch with each other.
Now phone boxes in the UK are increasingly diminishing in number.
Ainsdale councillor Lynne Thompson said: “I am delighted to see several disused phone boxes previously reported have finally been removed today.
“One outside the former police station, at Ainsdale roundabout; the second from the corner of Mary Avenue and Heathfield Road.
“These decommissioned boxes, flagged for removal last year, had fallen into quite a bad state and could not be removed until the 90 day public consultation period had lapsed.”
