BBC should have further explored issues raised about Tim Westwood – report

The BBC should have further explored issues raised about radio DJ Tim Westwood during his time at the broadcaster, an internal review into allegations of sexual misconduct has concluded. The corporation has now appointed an independent barrister to lead a broader review to “fully examine” his conduct during the two decades he spent working there. It comes as police are believed to be investigating sexual assault allegations against Westwood going back four decades. The DJ, who has not been named as a suspect by the Metropolitan Police, has previously been accused of a string of sexual assaults against women and has denied any wrongdoing.
