It is alleged in this discussion board thread that a mother has been arrested and held in custody for non-payment of her TV licence, despite it further being alleged that she produced documentary evidence that she had paid for a licence.
To clarify and re-confirm my views on TV licensing in general, I would rather see an end to the compulsory TV licensing regime and other methods (e.g. subscription?) employed to fund public-service broadcasting in the UK.
