Lord Patten: Entwistle pay-off was 'a lot of money'

The BBC Trust Chairman Lord Chris Patten has told MPs he knew the pay-off he agreed with the short-stay Director-General George Entwistle was a "hell of a lot of money".

Mr Entwistle received a sum of £450,000 for the 54 days he spent in the job. But Lord Patten told the Commons Culture Media and Sport Select Committee that Mr Entwistle had asked for even more than that.
