Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom has ruled BBC DJ Alex Dyke’s “misogynistic” remarks about breastfeeding were “in violation” of broadcasting rules.
Dyke was briefly suspended from his Radio Solent show after saying within a phone-in breastfeeding was “abnormal” and “has to be ceased” in public.
Ofcom said his opinions “stepped significantly beyond what might have been deemed appropriate by listeners”.
An additional BBC Trust report called it a “serious violation” of guidelines.
It said the show violated guidelines over causing damage and offence and equity, and also found the treatment of a single caller in particular to be “derogatory”.
