British regulator saves 1,400 phone booths

UK regulator Ofcom has introduced rules to prevent rural payphones from going in sparsely populated areas to disappear.

Ofcom estimates there are at least 1,400 payphones in areas without good cell coverage.

This is lower than the original estimate of 5000 payphones.

The payphones are also useful in areas with an average accident or suicide rate, and calls to services such as Childline, according to Ofcom.

Ofcom says more than 6,000 payphones have been sold and modified in other ways.
