London pirate operator fined

A CHINGFORD man who operated a pirate radio station from his home which interfered with TV signals has been fined.
Paul Hampshire, of York Road, appeared at Waltham Forest Magistrates' Court yesterday where he admitted setting up Unknown FM.
He was fined £350 and told to pay more than £5,000 court costs.
Ofcom was alerted when several residents in South Chingford called to complain that their satellite televisions could not pick up BBC1 and BBC2.
