Suspended BBC presenters return

Two presenters from BBC Southern Counties who were suspended for using the phrase Window Licker on air have been re-instated.

Ian Hart and commentator Andrew Hawes are both back in position, with Andrew returning shortly after the incident on October 7th, and Ian making a come back over the weekend.

Just two people are believed to have complained about the remark, which is commonly known as a derogatory term for a mentally disabled person.

Since the incident, which took place during a phone-in show, the club and fans have been campaigning for the return of the duo. A message board broke the news of Ian Hart's return, and gained comments such as: "Stop the clocks and lock the doors, thank heavens common sense has finally prevailed.

"A massive welcome back to Harty."
