NORTH East radio station 3NE/Edge FM has apologised for a broadcast on Tuesday afternoon that led to complaints from listeners about the use of bad language.
North East Broadcasters’ general manager, Colin Dayman, said technical and human error combined, with presenter Pat Gurry being unaware his comments were going to air after 4pm.

Mr Dayman said at the same time Mr Gurry had been chasing an elusive blowfly in the studio, an electrical switch failed.
