    Updated the piece, ta!
    Yeah, I've mentioned that in the update. It's the result of the way the BBC runs its news division, entirely firewalled from its operational division. Makes things fair, but you end up saying "the BBC has cited unnamed sources at the BBC as saying X, which the BBC has not yet formally confirmed nor denied." Gah!
