BBC terminates Panorama reporters in latest cuts

The BBC has made all dedicated in-house reporters for current affairs series Panorama redundant as part of the corporation's plans to cut costs across its news division.

External freelance reporters and internal BBC News journalists will now be utilised on Panorama following the redundancy of John Sweeney, Shelley Jofre, Paul Kenyon and Raphael Rowe.

Yesterday, the BBC proposed a restructure of its news division which includes the loss of 415 jobs as part of plans to save £48 million a year by 2016/17.
