They also went back through his Saturday night shows to ensure he had not played the gang-related music on the station.

The company stood by the DJ, insisting he had not broken any broadcasting guidelines.

A spokesman said: “Drill music has never formed part of the playlist for any of the Global brands.”

A Capital Xtra source said: “There have been lots of checks but Westwood hasn’t played any of this music on Capital Xtra.
