We’re aware of Conservative Party Facebook adverts using edited BBC content. This is a completely unacceptable use of BBC content which distorts our output and which could damage perceptions of our impartiality. We are asking the Conservatives to remove these adverts.

We know coronavirus is affecting BAME communities disproportionately. Here is an important message from @bbcasiannetwork . Please share 🙏

We've reviewed what was said re polling on . A YouGov poll published on the day of the programme suggested a lead for the Conservatives. Diane Abbott was also right that some other polls suggested Labour either as ahead or tied, & we should have made that clear.

The BBC will broadcast a response from the Leader of the Opposition to last night’s statement by the UK Prime Minister 17:50 @BBCRadio4  | @BBCSounds  18:55 @BBCOne  | @BBCNews  Channel with sign language interpreter

This fake survey on Karnataka polls has been circulating on Whats App and claims to be from BBC News. We'd like to make it absolutely clear that it is #fake  and does not come from the BBC. The BBC does not commission pre-election surveys in India. #fakenewsnews 

While preparing to broadcast, our reporter, her production team and guests were subjected to racist and abusive behaviour. We are appalled by what happened and will be reporting the incident to the police. We will not tolerate racism or abuse of our staff.

WATCH: R Kelly’s former girlfriend Kitti Jones shares with her experiences of abuse and grooming during their relationship. R Kelly: Sex, Girls & Videotapes is available on now
