Reporter Russell Joslin death: 'BBC let Russell down'

The BBC's handling of complaints from a journalist who is thought to have killed himself was "not good enough", an inquiry has found.

Russell Joslin, a radio reporter for BBC Coventry and Warwickshire, died in hospital last October aged 50.

He had complained to managers of sexual harassment by a female colleague, which his family said dated back to 2007.

Mr Joslin's brother-in-law, Dan Barnard, said the BBC had let Russell down.
