Some BBC's leading male presenters agree to pay cuts

Some of the BBC's leading male presenters have agreed to take a pay cut after revelations over equal pay.

Jeremy Vine, John Humphrys and Huw Edwards have agreed to reductions, either formally or in principle, the BBC's media editor Amol Rajan said.

It follows Carrie Gracie's resignation from her post as BBC China editor in protest at unequal pay between male and female international editors.

5 live presenter Nicky Campbell told listeners he had also taken a cut.

And North America editor Jon Sopel is believed to be in discussions with the corporation.

On his way into work at Radio 2 on Friday, Jeremy Vine was asked by reporters why he had agreed to a lower wage.
