Charles Sale's Sports Agenda column in the Mail has been following for some time the investigation of a freelancer who allegedly sabotaged a Radio 5 Live interview with Wigan manager Roberto Martinez last year.
It has been a relatively dull case in all honesty. Someone somewhere does something naughty. Bosses aren’t happy, launch investigation to find culprit, blah blah blah.
One line in his coverage today states:
“There is further concern about Jacobs [the freelancer] broadcasting naked during a shift last May without the correct permission.”
Er, sorry?!?! I know the health and safety wonks at the BBC are very particular, but please, someone tell me they don’t insist on people receiving “permission to broadcast naked”?
A slip of the keyboard from Mr Sale, or something altogether more weird? I think we should be told.
