Meal tickets

The Sunday Times (paywall) says the BBC paid for 16 people to attend the Media Society dinner in December, when Alan Yentob was presented with the 2014 Media Society Award, at a total cost of £2,400.

Individual tickets for the event cost £125-£150. Standard tables for ten cost £1,500, premium tables £2,000.

The BBC said it had “hosted a small number of guests while staff liaised with the large number of national journalists in attendance. The BBC has clear policies to ensure spending on hospitality is proportionate.” Top story of the night ? That Nigella Lawson's family call him Yum Yum Yentob.
