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'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.

@afneil  For those asking when Boris Johnson's interview will take place, we're in ongoing discussions with his team but we haven't yet been able to fix a date

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 

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

This video clip claiming to be a #BBC  news report about NATO and Russia has been circulating widely, particularly on WhatsApp. We'd like to make absolutely clear that it's a #fake  and does not come from the BBC. #fakenewsnews
