Good news: BBC TV licence figures plunge!
Thousands of households scrapped paying for the national broadcaster over the course of last year. The data was revealed as part of the TV Licensing annual review for 2020-2021.
It indicates that as of March 31 2021, there were 24.8 million Britons coughing up for the licence fee each year. The year before 25.5 million paid for the service.
The drop is a far steeper rate of decline than over the course of the previous year when about 200,000 chose not to renew the licence.
