Blaxill quits BBC 6 Music

The head of programmes for BBC 6 Music, Ric Blaxill, has quit his position following the corporation admitting four more breaches of editorial standards today. The former Capital Radio creative director is the most senior casualty of the growing scandal. Ric was working at the station during the competition fixing on Liz Kershaw's show.

Producer Leona McCambridge was sacked yesterday for her involvement. She plans to appeal against the decision and is being represented by Bectu.

Also announced today, competitions on the BBC's services will begin a "phased and controlled" return from November following a "strengthening of editorial guidance and control". Such competitions have been suspended since July.
