BTopenworld has launched an investigation into how an offensive Ali G-style message appeared on a recorded telephone help line.

The message, a poor imitation of the cult comedic figure, appeared around midnight 12th/13th March and was removed after about 15 minutes.

According to one reader, who asked to remain anonymous, the message said: "Aiii. D to the I to the O... BT are shite ... You want to eat now? You want to eat the pussy now? Do not go with the BT."

At this stage it's not known whether the prank was an inside job or, more seriously, done by someone from outside the company.

A spokesman for BTopenworld apologised for the mishap, adding that it wasn't the sort of message he wanted his customers hearing.

An investigation has been launched into the incident, he said. ®
