Met Police's fraud squad investigate BBC pay-offs scandal

Not bias-related but certainly BBC-related, the Daily Telegraph has an exclusive tonight:
Detectives from Scotland Yard’s fraud squad are investigating senior members of the BBC’s leadership over allegations of misconduct in public office, The Telegraph can disclose.
According to the paper, the Metropolitan Police are investigating whether the pay-offs amounted to fraud, given that "a quarter of senior managers received more than they were entitled to in the past three years...leaving the taxpayer with an unnecessary bill of £1 million." The Met's actions were prompted by a complaint from the Conservative MP Rob Wilson. The BBC says the police haven't been in touch yet and that the National Audit Office found that they hadn't behaved criminally.
