Stephen Mitchell Retires from BBC News

The BBC has announced that the deputy head of news, Stephen Mitchell, will retire when he works his notice. The news came after Nick Pollard, the former head of Sky News, published his report into the BBC’s handling of the Savile allegations.

Robert Peston, BBC Business Editor, said:

Elsewhere, Helen Boaden will return to her position as director of news tomorrow, and Peter Rippon, Newsnight editor, will move to another senior editorial position.
