FoI Factoid - the mileage clocked up in the chauffeur-driven VW Phaeton allocated to the BBC Director General show little difference in the distances covered by Mark Thompson (home base Oxford) and Lord Hall (Henley-on-Thames).

In Mark's last full year, 2011/12, it recorded 24,300 miles. There was a slight dip in 2012/3, including the Entwistle interregnum, at 22,600, and Lord Hall's first full year saw even less wear and tear, at 21,700. Now he's out and about like a good 'un, covering 24,200 miles last year.

Average UK mileage for car owners stood at some 7,200 in 2014.
