BBC News Channel’s staff have been accused of wasting taxpayers’ cash after workers photographed sleeping on the job.

The paper says the napping night-shifters were snapped by an angry colleague on the BBC News Channel. “It’s very difficult to work with someone snoring next to you,” said the furious employee.
