Guy Fawkes Openreach style

A giant effigy of a BT Openreach van has been burned at a village bonfire in frustration over slow broadband speeds.

Templeton residents chose to turn up the heat on the telecommunications company as many are struggling with speeds of less than 1 megabit.

BT said Templeton in Devon is extremely rural, which made the rollout of fibre broadband "more challenging".

It said it was working hard to find alternative ways of bringing faster broadband to residents, including a community fibre partnership and a mobile broadband solution.

A local resident said: "They managed to get a cable to the nearby hamlet of Nomansland, but just eight kilometres further and there's nothing.

"It's incompetence of the first order... but we all had a great evening watching the bonfire."
