RTÉ has released details about formal bullying and harassment complaints under the Freedom of Information Act.

According to the Independent, the national broadcaster received three formal harassment complaints since 2013.

However, it would not confirm which department the allegations came from, or the gender of the victims.

A rep for the station said: "RTÉ takes very seriously its duty of care towards its staff and contractors and to those providing services who are under the control of RTÉ," it said.

"This is reflected in the policies that RTÉ has in place.

"RTÉ believes that all staff have a responsibility to treat their colleagues with dignity and respect to ensure that the workplace is kept free of harassment and bullying."

This comes after Gay Byrne revealed there was a culture of "abject sexism" in the station in the 1970s.

"There are still a few people walking around the place, who are regarded as, I don't know what you'd call them...sex pests?" he said.
