Match of the Day 2 presenter Adrian Chiles has confirmed that he is one of a number of BBC employers who have been sent soiled toilet paper in the post.
According to The Sun, ‘police are investigating a string of packages posted to some of broadcasting’s best-known names since mid-January.’
Baggies fan Chiles said "I’ve had seven or eight lots. It’s disgusting. The smell of someone else’s shit is not something you want first thing in the morning."
In a statement, the BBC refused to disclose the names of the other corporation staff who have also received the unwanted mail in recent weeks.
"We try to avoid commenting on individual cases because, very often, those sending such mail gain pleasure from publicity," it said. "When we can identify the sender of such materials, they can expect a visit from the police." [Mof Gimmers]
