- The members of Radio Authority have agreed to the transfer of control to independent trusts of the four local radio licences controlled by jailed millionaire Owen Oyston.

The Radio Authority has agreed that Oyston's shares in The Bay (Morecambe Bay), Heart Beat 1521 (Craigavon) Gold Beat (Cookstown) and City Beat 96.7 (Belfast) maybe transferred into one or more trusts - provided that the trustees are independent of Oyston.

The latest move follows the decision made in December of last year when the RA decided that Oyston was not a fit and proper person to hold a radio licence following his unsuccessful appeal against criminal charges of rape and indecent assault.
