Yorkshire athletes grace phonebook cover

A PAIR of world champion Yorkshire brothers are to be the faces of BT’s latest phone book.

2009 world triathlon champion Alistair Brownlee and his brother Jonathan, reigning world under 23 triathlon world champion, will be on the cover to celebrate the build up to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Alistair and Jonathan said: “Featuring sports personalities on the cover of the BT Phone Book is a great idea as it will encourage people to get behind local athletes in their area.

“We were born in Yorkshire and still live in the region so we’re particularly proud to be the face of the Phone Book.”

The new look Yorkshire phone books are among the first of the new size compact edition to be delivered and are narrow enough to fit into standard-sized letter boxes.

The edition will also see several additional features, including a section with cut-out vouchers.
