BBC review finds 'no gender bias in on-air pay decisions'

There is "no gender bias" regarding pay decisions at the BBC, according to a new report into the corporation.

But the BBC's approach to setting pay in general "has been far from perfect", auditors PwC found.

Their report, published on Tuesday, found a 6.8% gender pay gap among on-air staff.

Responding to the report, the BBC said there would be "substantial" pay cuts for some men, and pay rises for some men and women.

Director general Tony Hall said "important issues" had to be tackled.
