Struggling with household bills? Finding the TV license fee a bit too much these days? Here is some news to cheer you up.
The BBC is to buy the homes of up to 1,500 staff and give them relocation packages of about £8,000 each as part of plans to shift operations to the North. The corporation will spend as much as £16.5million of licence fee money to help an army of workers move house. Despite pleading poverty over a £2billion funding gap, the corporation can afford to spend up to £3,000 on curtains and carpets for anyone moving near the new base in Salford.
