Sir Michael Lyons, chairman of the BBC Trust, has reiterated that the governing body might tell BBC management to "rethink" the planned closure of modern rock digital station 6 Music, depending on the public consultation.

The Facebook campaign to save the network now has more than 108,000 members, following the March 2 announcement of the closure proposal for 6 Music as part of a BBC strategy review.

"If we find that there's massive public concern that we need to take account of, then we will go back to the director general to rethink the strategy before it's approved," Sir Michael said on the BBC's "Today" radio program this morning.

Lily Allen has added her voice to the campaign to save 6 Music, with an article in the Guardian newspaper in which she said it was "bad news for unsigned acts and new British music."

"It will be awful if they do decide to close BBC 6 Music, and I hope that the backlash they've received so far will make them think twice," the U.K. pop artist wrote.
