A BBC radio DJ has been suspended for a week for cracking a joke about the death of the Queen on a live radio show.
Danny Kelly, 39, who was hosting his regular afternoon show between 2pm and 4pm on Monday, made the most shocking joke to listeners, reports the Daily Express.
The BBC apologized for the 'inappropriate remark about the Queen' on Monday night but it has emerged that Kelly was suspended from his job for a week as punishment.
Kelly, who has worked for 10 years in local radio, used his BBC WM show, based in Birmingham, to make the joke live on air.
