The BBC has a report on police raids against pirate radio operators in 

The radio authority behind the raids, "Ofcom" -- what a name: that 
sounds like it came out of Orwell's "1984", like "MiniTrue" -- states 
that they got complaints of interference from emergency services.

I'm surprised at how many pirates are allegedly operating in London and 
the southeast of England, about 75, according to the story.   London's a 
big city and all, but this probably dwarfs the number of pirates around 
any major US city, doesn't it?
