Capital’s Roman Kemp in trouble for repeated swear words

The UK’s Capital network has been found in breach of two Ofcom rules for broadcasting a pre-recorded offensive item twice in the same breakfast show.
 
Content with the offensive language, (an F bomb), was broadcast in a segment at 6.10am, for which the breakfast presenter apologised.
 
The exact same content, a prank call, was then broadcast again at 8.15 followed by a similar apology.
 
Around 6.30 Roman Kemp (pictured) said: “Just a quick note just to apologise on our behalf if you heard any bad language during Don’t Hang Up this morning. Just so that’s an apology on our behalf for any bad language you may have heard this morning”.
 
Then at approximately 8.30, immediately after the second broadcast of Don’t Hang Up, Roman Kemp said: “Well I just want to say just really quickly, I’m so sorry for any bad language that you heard inside that Don’t Hang Up. It does get quite intense in there sometimes, it really does. But yes, apologies on our behalf for that one”.
 
Global said the item was repeated due to a technical issue.
 
The station has been found in breach of Rule 1.14, which states that the most offensive language must not be broadcast on radio when children are particularly likely to be listening, and in breach of Rule 2.3 for generally accepted standards.(And it’s a good idea not to repeat it!)
