The incoming chief executive of the New York Times is facing new questions over what he knew about the Jimmy Savile paedophile scandal when he was director general of the BBC, amid apparent inconsistencies in his public statements.

Mark Thompson is due to start his new job on 12 November, but the NYT’s public editor, or ombudsman, questioned his suitability for the role in a blogpost on Tuesday. In her article, Margaret Sullivan called for the paper to cover Thompson’s knowledge of the scandal and allegations of a cover-up “more aggressively”.
