BREAKING: Lord Hall resigns as National Gallery chairman
Former BBC director general Lord Hall has resigned as chairman of the National Gallery following a report into Panorama’s interview with Princess Diana.
Lord Hall was heavily criticised in the Dyson report for his botched inquiry into how the interview was obtained, and said that continuing in the role ‘would be a distraction to an institution I care deeply about’.
He had also faced questions over the decision to rehire Mr Bashir in 2016 as religious affairs correspondent, even though it was known that he had lied over the bank statements.
On Friday, former BBC executive Tim Suter, who was part of the 1996 internal investigation, stepped down from his board role with media watchdog Ofcom.
