Communications watchdog Ofcom has rapped a radio station which accidentally played 'pornographic content' during a show
A radio station breached the broadcasting code when it accidentally played "pornographic content" during a show, according to communications watchdog Ofcom.
Listeners tuning in to the Funky Sensation show with Mike Vitti on Jazz FM heard swearing and "clearly audible sounds of sexual activity" for around five minutes.
Ofcom's report said a member of station staff "opened a personal email on the studio computer and accessed a weblink containing pornographic content; but by mistake left the sound fader linked to this computer open on the broadcast console. This resulted in the broadcast of the audio of the pornographic content."
