BBC radio transmitter disruption in northern England

The BBC's FM radio services across Greater Manchester and parts of Yorkshire have been disrupted by a power failure.

BBC Radio 1, 2, 3 and 4 could not be received for 95 minutes as a result of a technical difficulty at the transmitter site at Holme Moss in the south Pennines.

Radio Manchester, Radio Leeds and Radio Sheffield were also off-air.

Listeners could still hear the stations online and through DAB digital radios.

The problems were resolved by 1845 BST.
