Video: Tony Blackburn 'sacked' by BBC over Savile review evidence


Tony Blackburn says he has been sacked by the BBC over his evidence to a sex abuse review. The veteran DJ has pledges to take legal action against the corporation, which he claims is making him a "scapegoat" for the "cover-up" of abuse of an under-age girl. His shock departure comes as a report is published about the BBC's culture and practices during the years Jimmy Savile and fellow shamed presenter Stuart Hall worked at the corporation by former Court of Appeal judge Dame Janet Smith.
