George Entwistle 'was paid double to go quietly'
Steven Swinford and Gordon RaynerThe public spending watchdog will review the £450,000 payout to George Entwistle after both the Prime Minister and the Culture Secretary said it was “hard to justify”.
Conservative and Labour MPs called for Lord Patten to resign over the payment and for failing to get to grips with the crisis.
Mr Entwistle, who stood down on Saturday night after just 54 days in the job, left the corporation with a £450,000 lump sum on top of his £877,000 pension. The payment amounts to £8,333 for every day he spent as director-general.
