BBC apologises over biased reporting on Dale Farm

On the 14th of February, the 'ONE show' told the story of the travelling community who were being unlawfully evicted from Dale Farm. The 5-minute piece failed to mention the fact that the area had been marked, by the council, to be a green belt area which aims to combat the growing issue of urban sprawl by maintaing green areas and transforming them into an area for agriculture, forestry or leisure.

Following the brief report, the show's presenters sympathised with the travelling community and failed to perserve an unbiased front which led Basildon council to lodge a formal complaint about the inaccurate and misleading information presented.

The BBC editorial standards committee has admitted that the show had been duly inaccurate yet unknowingly misleading.
