15 pictures of protest over BBC cuts to Radio Foyle staff and programming

There was a large turnout on Wednesday afternoon at a protest over Radio Foyle staff and programming cuts announced by the BBC.

The protest outside Radio Foyle’s offices on Northland Road was arranged after the BBC Northern Ireland confirmed on Tuesday it was cutting jobs and programming in the north west.

While some programmes will remain, the announcement that eight of 12 journalist positions from Radio Foyle are to go next year along with the Breakfast Show and local news bulletins has been met with widespread outrage across the region.
