Press TV, the Iranian state broadcaster's English-language outlet, has been forced off the air in the UK after Ofcom revoked its licence for breaching the broadcasting code.

Yvonne Ridley, a former war correspondent who works for Press TV, says the closure of the channel is essentially an act of censorship and denies that the channel is a mouthpiece for the Iranian government.
