The Radio Norfolk presenter who denounced the BBC live on air over its decision to axe her show has accused the Corporation of 'censorship' after it removed her tirade from its Sounds app.

Sophie Little delivered a damning two-minute condemnation of her bosses at the start of the last-ever episode of Treasure Quest, which has been cut as part of a major restructuring of local radio.

However, when the show was later posted on the BBC's on-demand Sounds service, her comments had been removed.

Instead, the recording starts after she has finished the tirade and as she introduces the beginning of the show.

"The BBC seems to have censored my speech on BBC Sounds and I'm not sure why," she said.

"I have had no contact from anyone at the BBC. I think it's important for them to clarify why this was taken down.

"I believe in the BBC and what it stands for, I also believe we should be able to question the decisions it takes that affect its audience."

In her on-air attack, Ms Little described the decision to axe the show as "unbelievably unfair".

She said it was "ageist" and "ableist" and would harm "those who need local public service broadcasting the most".

Under the BBC's changes, England's 39 local stations will share more programmes in afternoons, evenings and weekends.

Treasure Quest, which was broadcast on Sunday mornings, has been a Radio Norfolk cult favourite for 15 years.

It saw listeners solve a series of clues which guided presenters around Norfolk visiting communities.

A BBC spokesman said: "Part of this programme has been edited since broadcast for editorial reasons and this is made clear on the programme's BBC Sounds page."
