Sir: BT could solve the problem of sex adverts in phone boxes (report, 20 June) by ringing the advertised numbers every 20 minutes with a recorded message call that informs the ladies that their numbers have been obtained from telephone boxes before urging them to use some other means of promoting their services.

If these interruptions to their businesses are insufficient to bring about the desired effect, simply passing on their numbers to the sales departments of double glazing firms should do the trick.

Yours sincerely,
