The BBC is to review whether “additional steps” should be taken when vetting guests for political debates.

The broadcaster was criticised over those given a chance to ask questions during its televised debate between candidates in the Tory leadership race.

It emerged that one guest had shared allegedly anti-Semitic tweets – he was later suspended from his job.

A BBC spokesperson said “vetting and transparency” of guests for political debate programmes would be reviewed.
