'Disciplinary action' after This Morning investigation
ITV released a statement today after finishing its investigation into This Morning. It came after presenter Phillip Schofield handed the Prime Minister a list of alleged paedophiles he had found online.
Last Thursday we began an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the mistake on that day's This Morning programme, for which both Phillip Schofield and ITV apologised. This investigation has now concluded and the appropriate disciplinary action has been taken. We sincerely apologise because the way in which the issue was raised was clearly wrong and should have been handled differently. We have taken steps to make sure our editorial processes are always properly followed, which was not the case in this instance, and to ensure such an error will not be made again.
