HULL: Free TV licences are available for people aged 75 and over living in the city.
There are currently more than 19,200 free TV licences being used in Hull, but TV Licensing is encouraging those able to claim the concession to apply online or by phone.
Janet Morrison, chief executive of Independent Age, said: "We know from experience just how much many older people value their televisions.
"For many, television is a great source of information and fun, but for those who find it difficult to get out and about due to ill health or mobility problems, it can also be a much-needed source of company.
"Many older people live on very limited incomes, so the free television licence that is available to people aged 75 and over is a really valued concession."
Eligible people can register online at www.tvlicensing.co.uk/over75 or call 0300 7906073. The free licence will cover all equipment in the property.
