Chorley FM DJ Lucas Campbell pulled the plug on his own show - quitting publicly, live on air after his slot was rescheduled by bosses.

A former station director, Mr Campbell, of Coppull, was the presenter of the Rock of Ages show on Tuesdays between 8pm-11pm.

However station chiefs decided to move the show to Mondays from 10pm-midnight.

Steven Normyle, Chorley FM's director of marketing and advertising, said he was "disappointed" with Mr Campbell's actions.

"We are disappointed in the way things have turned out," he said.

"We were trying to be as sympathetic with Lucas as we are with all our presenters as they are all volunteers and we try to accommodate them as best we can.

"He was involved in the changes that were happening at the station and didn't make us aware of any problems."

Mr Normyle said Mr Cambell's decision to quite live on air "was not professional at all".

He said: "We certainly didn't expect it from him. He was at the top of our list, that when changes would be made, he would be a priority for rescheduling.

"Obviously a rock show wouldn't be our number one show in terms of target audience and other shows had to take precedence in the rescheduling."

Chorley FM bosses carried out the rescheduling process to comply with the requirements of their Ofcom licence.
