Capita win first Switchover help scheme contract

Capita, the company that collects the TV licence fee, has been awarded the contract to provide help with digital switchover to the residents of Whitehaven, beating three other companies including (as reported earlier this month) BT. From June, the company will provide financial and technical support for the elderly, disabled and poor to make the switch to digital. Switchover begins in the town in October.
