The residents of Westport have issued their complaints to Fine Gael Minister Michael Ring, after several residents had reportedly received a high number of wrong-number dials from callers seeking to contact phone-sex chatlines in the UK.
The problem allegedly arises from customers in the UK, seeing chatline numbers on late-night TV, and dialling without the international dialling code, which for many of these chatlines apparently gives phone numbers that can be found in the Westport constituency. "One of these people has an elderly mother and family members all over the world and there could be a call at any time that they would have to take." Mr Ring has apparently written to Comreg and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI), asking them to intervene in the issue.
He then warned callers that the discussions were illegal and recordings could be sent to police.
