Two executives involved with the Newsnight broadcast that wrongly linked a Conservative Peer to child abuse allegations could face disciplinary action, after a BBC internal inquiry concluded there had been "unacceptable" editorial failings involved in the broadcast, reports The Guardian.
BBC sources told the newspaper that Liz Gibbons, the programme's acting editor, and Adrian Van Klaveran, the supervising executive seconded from his job running Radio 5 Live, are expected to face a disciplinary process that could result in them being sacked or exonerated.
