Lord Coe 'thinking' about BBC Trust role

Lord Sebastian Coe says he is "thinking" about applying for the BBC Trust role.

The Conservative peer and chairman of the London 2012 Olympics organising committee denied that he had been approached formally about the position.

Lord Coe told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire: "It is a very meaty job and I'm passionate about public service broadcasting."

"But the honest answer is I probably have a few weeks to think about it."
