Fathers4Justice International Campaign Director, Nadine O’Connor, is denied access to Broadcasting House in London by BBC security after she attempted to deliver a formal complaint about CBeebies star Katy Ashworth. The letter was later accepted by a BBC commissioner.
Ashworth has been denying dad, Australian TV director Ben Alcott, access to his son Charlie over a number of years. Alcott hadn’t seen his son in four months, and had travelled 40,000 miles to and from Australia where he lives, with Charlie’s Christmas present, over the last 2 months.
Ashworth, who had since moved from London to Manchester, had told Alcott he couldn’t see his son again on this visit until Fathers4Justice stepped in and announced a protest outside the BBC.
Ashworth backed down, and the two were eventually reunited in Manchester where Ben was able to give his son his Christmas present.
The complaint about Katy Ashworth was lodged with the Director-General of the BBC calling for her to be suspended pending an investigation into the allegations against her in the Daily Mail.
