Men behind Huddersfield pirate radio station in court

Two men have appeared in court after a pirate radio station was run from their two Huddersfield homes.
The illegal station, named Phatt FM, was broadcast for a month using properties including an Almondbury flat.
One of the caught men Philip Hnatkiwskyj - known as DJ Niceness - has been a disc jockey for 25 years and previously worked for hospital radio in the town [in West Yorkshire].
The men's prosecutions, brought by Ofcom, were so unusual that magistrates had no guidelines to consult when sentencing them.
