A teenager's party turned into a home-trashing riot in TORQUAY, ENGLAND FRIDAY night, and her mother says BBC RADIO 1 is to blame for airing a caller's "shout out" advertising the fancy-dress party to the general public.
REBECCA BROOKS says that RADIO 1's DJ PETE TONG broadcast the details of her daughter SARAH RUSCOE's party, resulting in up to 2,000 revelers showing up uninvited and trashing the family home. The station says that TONG read an item sent in by a listener about the party but did not disclose the party's address.
