Gosling 'very surprised' at killing arrest.

BBC presenter Ray Gosling believed confessing to the mercy killing of a lover would not cause "many ripples", his solicitor said yesterday.

Gosling was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of murder and questioned by detectives on five separate occasions over 30 hours before he was granted bail.

The 70-year-old's arrest came after he revealed on BBC East Midlands' Inside Out programme that he smothered a male lover as he lay in a hospital bed dying of Aids.

Yesterday, solicitor Digby Johnson said Gosling was "very surprised" at the reaction the programme received after it aired on Monday evening.

Mr Johnson said: "Ray thought it was a fairly short item on a regional television programme and it wouldn't cause many ripples."
