wherein the wireless access interface provided by the base stations includes
a plurality of time divided sub-frames, each sub-frame including the plurality of communications resource elements of the first frequency range and the plurality of the communications resource elements of the second frequency range, and each sub-frame includes
a first wideband control channel in a part of each sub-frame having a bandwidth corresponding substantially to the first frequency range, and
a second narrow band control channel in a second part of each sub-frame and having a bandwidth which is less than the first wideband control channel.
