Newsnight editor Peter Rippon "stepped aside" today after BBC bosses rejected his explanation about why he pulled the plug on an investigation into Jimmy Savile's (pictured) alleged abuse of young girls on BBC premises.
Mr Rippon resigned before last night's hour-long BBC Panorama documentary about his decision to drop Newsnight's investigation and his subsequent explanation through a blog on the BBC website.
BBC bosses labelled the blog "inaccurate or incomplete in some respects" and several corrections have been made to the original post.
The corrected blog reveals that Newsnight had unearthed new information about Savile's alleged crimes.
Children's charity NSPCC would not comment on last night's show but said it hoped the Savile investigation would see more victims come forward.
So far the NSPCC has received 136 calls relating to allegations against Savile, which it has referred to the police.
Foreign Minister Alistair Burt's admission that the Cameron government has "supported" a survey of attitudes to US drone strikes in Pakistan's tribal areas amounts to a tacit admission of British involvement.
