Scots singer Sandi Thom has claimed that Radio 2 will not play her new record because the BBC is anti-Scottish.

Thom posted an emotional, expletive-ridden rant on Facebook that went viral on Wednesday after the station refused to play her new single Earthquake.

The Banff singer songwriter has now claimed that the BBC does not represent Scottish artists.

She told STV’s Scotland Tonight: “This week on the Radio 2 playlist, there are no Scottish artists. This is not due to a lack of talent coming from Scotland. There is a massive bias in the BBC network, not just Radio 2, against Scottish artists.”

Thom, who is six months pregnant, has now removed the original video that she posted on Facebook.
