In response to reports that the BBC is reconsidering the naming a part of Broadcasting House after the late John Peel, a BBC spokesman said:

"Clearly in the event of proven allegations of sexual abuse, the BBC would reconsider its decision on the naming of part of our new building."

Today's Daily Mail features the claims of a woman, now 59, who says she was made pregnant by John Peel during a three-month affair they had when she was 15.
