HARLOW Hospital Radio (HHR) has publicised the results into an internal investigation follows the sentencing of the former chair of Harlow Council, Ian Jackson for downloading images of child abuse.

Jackson was a DJ at the radio station for many years and was in charge of their IT.

The chair of HHR said: “Mr Jackson used to be a member of Harlow Hospital Radio. Like all other members this was done on a voluntary basis and he did not work for the organisation. As soon as we were made aware of the offences, Mr Jackson’s membership was immediately terminated, and all ties with the station were severed.

One of the roles that Mr Jackson was engaged with whilst a member of the station was technical support. Predominantly a role which involves the upkeep of the station’s dedicated playout system. This is a stand alone computer which is a non-internet based system.

“As part of our internal investigation we have confirmed that there was no breach of the station’s safeguarding policy. We have liaised with the hospital regarding Mr Jackson, and can confirm that we have not been approached by any authorities in relation to this investigation”.
