CAMPAIGNERS have lost their fight against a mobile phone giant and its controversial mast.

Workers for T-Mobile have almost finished putting the mast up on the corner of St Paul's Wood Hill and Beddington Road, St Paul's Cray.

Security guards kept watch at the site last night after angry scenes yesterday when anti-mast protestors - who have fought a six-month battle against the development - attempted to tear barricades down.

Workers arrived early this morning and installed the electronic equipment needed for the mast to work.

Campaigner Sam Anderson, 35, said: "We're all pretty gutted.

"It is just amazing that T-Mobile goes to such an extent to have security guards there overnight and to double barricade themselves in.

"Surely that means nobody wants it."

The mother-of-three is now focusing her attention on organising a mass march through central London to Downing Street.

She is currently waiting for a call from the Met Police to finalise a date for the protest which she hopes will take place as soon as the House of Commons meets after the summer recess.

Call Mrs Anderson on 020 8302 4043 to get involved with the campaign.

T-Mobile has been unavailable for comment since yesterday.
