BBC DJ bailed over order 'breach'

BBC radio DJ Andy Kershaw has been released on bail after appearing in court in the Isle of Man, charged with breaching a restraining order.

Kershaw, 48, presents a Radio 3 show and was a Radio 1 DJ for 15 years. He was arrested on 29 August near the home of his former partner, Juliette Banner.

She had previously obtained an order preventing Kershaw, originally from Rochdale, from visiting her Peel home.

He is due to appear again at court in Douglas on 18 September.

The court heard that Kershaw worked with the Peel lifeboat and was given permission to work beyond his curfew.

'Personal matter'

The restraining order had been granted on 1 August against Mr Kershaw, who has two children with Ms Banner.

The couple used to live in north London but moved to the island town of Peel in April last year, before separating.

He has been with Radio 3 since April 2001 where he presents a world music show, but had been on a summer break when he was arrested.

The BBC would not comment on the case, calling it a "personal matter".
