Engineers work to correct leaning BBC radio transmitter
The BBC reports that engineers have been on the scene today to straighten the top third of the affected mast, which has developed a noticeable tilt.
The official BBC transmitter fault checker confirms that transmissions from the Arqiva-owned site have continued as normal throughout the day.
Start Point was the home to important tests by BBC Engineers during the Second World War when horizontally-polarised transmissions were tested, to see if broadcasts could be made without providing enemy aircraft with a navigational radio beacon and the site has transmitted a number of different radio services over the years. It is now solely used for BBC Radio 5 Live.
