Radio DJ Andy Baird has been suspended from his weekly slot on Cool FM over controversial social media posts about Donald Trump, the US election and recent violence in Washington DC.

The presenter, described as the "superhero of the station" on Cool FM's website, hosts the weekend breakfast show every Sunday morning.

He was suspended from his role yesterday after dozens of controversial tweets emerged in which he appears to support the violence witnessed at the US Capitol building last week, spreads coronavirus conspiracy theories and mocks the 'Clap for Carers' initiative.
