BBC DJ David Lowe loses job over racist word in song

A veteran BBC local radio presenter has lost his job after playing a 1930s version of The Sun Has Got His Hat On without realising the recording contained a racist word.

David Lowe said it was an innocent mistake and the BBC later acknowledged it could have handled the situation better and offered him his job back.

Lisa Hampele reports.
