“I am aware of this tree and it is programmed along with similar others in the area to be removed tomorrow morning.

The future of 6 Music is a decision for the BBC Trust to make after they have consulted with licence fee payers.

I am unconvinced that shutting 6 Music would contribute to these goals.
