BBC presenter John Humphrys has been accused of being “condescending”, “sneery” and “arrogant” after the audio of him joking about equal pay for women at the corporation was leaked.

Humphrys, the BBC’s highest paid news presenter, was recorded joking with colleague Jon Sopel about the issue off-air, after China editor Carrie Gracie had resigned over it.

A transcript of the exchange was leaked earlier this week, but on Saturday Buzzfeed News released the audio.
