Beeb finds its editors not to blame for Gilligan's gaffe

The post Hutton Spanish inquisition at the BBC has cleared its editors of improper conduct and failing to follow procedures.

Hutton had blamed a breakdown of procedures and the BBC as being the root of all evil in his cleaning of the government's wartime laundry but as was widely recognised by those conversant with media matters it was Gilligan's unscripted early morning mutterings that caused all the trouble.

So there will be no sackings as the board decides not to alienate any more of its staff.
