Pirate radio station raided in north London

A PIRATE radio station operating from a house in Ponders End (Enfield) was shutdown this morning (Feb 4) after a police raid.

Officers from Ponders End Safer Neighbourhood Team swooped on the Alexandra Road address after monitoring the illegal station broadcasting locally.

Officers from media watchdog OFCOM were involved in the operation, after receiving reports of a pirate station interfering with legal broadcasts and containing offensive language.

Around £5,000 worth of equipment was seized, and two men, aged 40 and 51, were arrested on suspicion of broadcasting offences. They are currently being questioned at a north London police station.
