Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

What research was done by the BBC when planning to remove radio streams from TuneIn regarding the impact this would have on those with impaired visibility, or other disabilities?

By removing the radio streams from Tunein this has caused indirect discrimination under the Equality Act 2010, by stopping those with impaired visibility from being able to listen to BBC radio how they have done for years.

Will licence fee payers money be used to contest any legal action brought against the BBC for this breach of the Equality Act?

Yours faithfully,

Phil-D
