Tony Hall: 'We're creating a more bespoke BBC'

The BBC is to hire around 100 local reporters to work with local newspapers, under new plans announced by the BBC's director general Tony Hall.

The proposals are part of the corporation's negotiations with the government ahead of its charter renewal next year.

Other plans include an expansion of the World Service, a children's iPlayer and a hub for data journalism.

Speaking to journalists and staff on Monday morning, Tony Hall outlined the plans.
