BBC Radio 5 live controller Adrian Van Klaveren is amongst the 107 most senior decision-makers in the Corporation to have details of their business-related expenses made public.

Some of which include four return flights from Manchester to London within the space of a month.

In October, he booked a return flight to Boston costing more than one thousand pounds on a research trip ahead of fitting out the new buildings in Salford.
