The BBC is to make a further 70 job cuts in its news service, increasing to 520 from the 450 job losses announced earlier this year.
The increase in the job losses are a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has increased the financial pressures on the BBC. The jobs cuts include senior management positions.
Most of the BBC News output is being retained, but more content is to be shared amongst programmes both locally and nationally.
However, some high profile shows including the Victoria Derbyshire programme have been axed, although Victoria does remain as a BBC News presenter.
