BBC Radio Scotland comedy pulled

The BBC has pulled a radio comedy show featuring sketches of a cow flying into the twin towers and a spoof Rolf Harris drawing cartoons of the prophet Muhammad.

BBC Radio Scotland's The Franz Kafka Big Band was due to begin next week but has been removed from the schedules after concerns about its controversial content.

The corporation said the programme's "bold" subject matter required some "fine-tuning" before it could go on air.
