Vandals stop broadband installation on footpath at Preston mosque after protests

Police were called on Tuesday morning after residents living in the Fishwick Parade area of Preston protested against the work taking place on a footpath outside Masjid-E-Aqsa mosque in Great Townley Street by Riversway-based Internexus.

Hawzah News Agency (Preston - UK) - Vandals have struck after a row broke out over efforts to install broadband equipment near a mosque.

Police were called on Tuesday morning after residents living in the Fishwick Parade area of Preston protested against the work taking place on a footpath outside Masjid-E-Aqsa mosque in Great Townley Street by Riversway-based Internexus.

Although it is known that protesters wanted to disrupt the work, it is not known who carried out the vandalism.

An Internexus spokesman said: “When workmen arrived at the site on Tuesday morning to continue with the installation, concrete had been poured into the works, and ducts and other equipment had been cut and filled with concrete. This was reported to local police who attended the site.

“A purported representative of the Mosque was stood in the works, preventing workman from clearing the concrete before it was set.”

The foundations were for a 15 meter pole, which would eventually hold a wireless transmitter on top. A concrete plinth for a cabinet that would contain telecommunications equipment was also being installed.
