PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The BBC should have explored issues that were raised about Tim Westwood further, a report has said. The internal review into allegations of sexual misconduct during the DJ's time at the broadcaster is complete. The corporation has now appointed an independent barrister to lead a broader review to "fully examine" his conduct during the two decades he spent working there. In July, the BBC said it received six complaints against Westwood, including one that was referred to police, despite director-general Tim Davie previously saying he had seen "no evidence of complaints". Mr Davie subsequently launched an internal audit, reporting to the BBC board's senior independent director, Sir Nicholas Serota.
