The acting Director-General of the BBC, Tim Davie, ended his interview with Sky News this afternoon by walking off..

The live interview, conducted by Dermot Murnaghan, ran for seven and half minutes before the DG said: “Anyway, I will go now, because I’ve got a lot to do.

“The BBC is taking action, that’s what we’re going to do.. I’ve got a job and I am going to get on with it.. Thank you Dermot!”

“Are more heads going to roll Mr. Davie?” said Dermot..

“Thank you!,” came Tim’s reply as he walked away from Sky’s camera position..

UPDATE: in the last few minutes the BBC Press office said: “DG did not walk off from his interview with Sky. Interview overran, clashing with other interviews.”

Lucy Manning, ITV News’ UK Editor, also echoed the BBC line, saying: “Not sure Davie actually stormed off. Sky had v long intv & we & others were waiting..”
