BBC Radio 1 controller explains Thatcher row song decision

BBC Radio 1 controller Ben Cooper has said that a "four or five" second clip of the Wizard of Oz song at the centre of an anti-Margaret Thatcher campaign will be played on the Official Chart Show.

Sales of Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead have soared since the former Prime Minister's death on Monday, aged 87.

Mr Cooper called the decision "a difficult compromise" and said he was "stuck between a rock and a hard-place".
