BBC causes problems for Beacon

BBC Radio Shropshire has apologised to Beacon Radio after supplying wrongly marked information regarding school closures.

The two stations, along with the local council, were testing a new way of communicating information which didn’t go according to plan.

I remember the days when a BBC LR station that suspected the ILR opposition of copying their list of closed of closed schools, inserted the names of bogus, non existent, schools to see if they were rebroadcast – just to prove the point.
Nowadays BBC public spiritedness clearly extends a little further. Despite the fail in this case.
