Comic Relief trustees 'acting in good faith'

Comic Relief invested millions of pounds in tobacco, alcohol and arms firms between 2007 and 2009, the BBC's Panorama programme has learned.

Comic Relief said it used its funds to "deliver the greatest benefits to the most vulnerable people".

The charity's chief executive, Kevin Cahill, told The World at One's Martha Kearney that the invested money had enabled Comic Relief to do more good work with people who needed help.
