Dozens of pop stars, including Blur, Travis and Tom Jones, have been left £700,000 out of pocket after funds went missing from the royalty payment company.

The London-based company, which issues payment for radio airplay, said it had discovering ‘significant financial irregularities’ following an audit carried out earlier this year.

It has also dismissed director Peter Horrey, of Stansted, Essex. Horrey’s assets have been frozen through a High Court injunction.
