Inquiry begins at Sunday Times over Kevin Myers column

By Julia Hunt

Senior editorial executives at the Irish edition of the Sunday Times have been spoken to as part of the internal inquiry into how last weekend's controversial Kevin Myers column came to be published.

An editor from the newspaper's headquarters in London flew into Dublin yesterday as part of the review, which is expected to be completed by the end of the week. Ireland editor Frank Fitzgibbon and associate editor John Burns were among those spoken to as part of the process, it is understood.

Mr Myers was quickly sacked after a column on the gender pay gap at the BBC was widely described as "misogynistic" and "anti-Semitic".
