Pirate radio station raided in Somerset

A suspected pirate radio station operating from the centre of Taunton, Somerset, has been closed down following a raid by police and OFCOM officers.

Town Centre Neighbourhood officers and members of OFCOM, the independent regulator and competition authority for the UK communications industries, executed a warrant under the Wireless and Telegraphy Act 2006.

Computers and broadcasting equipment was seized during the operation in the High Street area, police say.

Police were called in after complaints about Rage FM, which broadcast junk music and political comment, including expletives.
