A schoolboy was stunned when Government officials swooped on his bedroom and confiscated his TV aerial--because it was interfering with planes landing at a nearby airport. According to Ofcom, pilots coming in to land at the airport had lost contact with the control tower because the faulty aerial was transmitting on the same frequency as the cockpit radios.
