The bosses of a pirate radio station in Taunton (Somerset) say they’ll be back despite being shut down for the second time in five months.
A spokesman for the industry watchdog (Ofcom) said the raid on Rage FM on Friday morning was part of an inquiry into “radio interference”. A Rage representative said he was incensed by the early morning operation.
He said: “Their (Ofcom) tactics are turning desperate. “Their activities woke many residents – just to seize an FM transmitter rig and aerial from a tree. Their claims of interference to emergency services radios and anti-social behaviour are generalised to say the least and no such evidence exists in our case.”
