BBC criticised over Savile report

An inquiry into Newsnight's shelving of a report into sexual abuse by Jimmy Savile has criticised BBC management but found no evidence of a cover-up.

A separate report is critical of a Newsnight report which led to Lord McAlpine being wrongly implicated in child abuse allegations.

The editor and deputy editor of Newsnight are to be replaced.
