Just over 400,000 new listeners to DAB digital radio could now tune in, thanks to a new transmitter switched on at Whitehawk Hill to cover Brighton and Worthing.

The transmitter, powered up on 7th November, means listeners with a tuner or radio displaying the DAB digital radio logo can receive national BBC digital-only stations 6 Music and 1 Xtra
