Link FM in the London Borough of Havering, which won a licence to broadcast on 92.2fm in 2006, will close at midday Monday 28th June.

Presenter Nicki Cook told the [link=http://www.romfordrecorder.co.uk/content/havering/recorder/news/story.aspx?brand=RECOnline&category=newsRomford&tBrand=northlondon24&tCategory=newsromford&itemid=WeED23%20Jun%202010%2017:32:52:233]Romford Recorder[/link] it was a painful decision to close, saying: "This hasn't been easy. We have 60 volunteers – some who have been with us since inception – and we've all put a lot of hours, blood, sweat and tears into this station."

Link FM operated almost a dozen RSL licences before being granted a full time community licence and has almost 60 volunteers.
