Should we keep red telephone boxes?

 

Thousands more traditional red telephone boxes are to be revived by local communities and could be transformed into museums, libraries and homes for defibrillators. The telephone company, BT, has revealed that almost 4,000 more of its phone boxes across the UK are being made available because they have become unnecessary due to the use of mobile phones.
