Report: Study finds two nuisance calls received per week

The communications regulator Ofcom says it's cracking down on companies which make nuisance calls.

It's published research today, which found that people get an average of two calls a week, where someone tries to sell them something they don't want, or there's nobody on the end of the line, as Tom Sheldrick reports.
