Internet services have taken a hit in Cockermouth after a BT cabinet is damaged by a car.
It is understood that a vehicle collided with the cabinet, on Station Road at the intersection with Gallowbarrow, damaging the fiber broadband.
Residents and some shops are reporting problems with internet, Wi-Fi and telephone connections, as well as affecting ee and BT services.
Engineers are now on site and it is likely that temporary traffic lights will be installed while the work is underway.
It is unknown how long the work will take, although some users say they were told a week.
