Janice Long mugged outside BBC Radio 2

BBC Radio 2 late night presenter Janice Long has been punched in the face and mugged, with her attacker only robbing a VIP pass for an Echo and the Bunnymen concert.

The bizarre attack, which took place outside Western House on Great Portland Street, was mentioned by Janice on her midnight till 2am show.

Janice said how she had to attend an identity parade at a nearby police station and that it was very strange. The VIP pass, which she was wearing around her neck, was no longer valid as the concert had finished but it did give admission to a private party afterwards.

The Daily Mail says a woman has been charged with robbery following the incident.
