The BBC is said to be at war over whether or not to air a Panorama documentary attacking a police probe into an alleged VIP paedophile ring.
Tension between rival news teams has reportedly led the corporation to delay broadcasting the programme, which is thought to bring into question the credibility of Scotland Yard’s investigation into abuse at Dolphin Square in central London.
Those findings reportedly brought the makers of Panorama into conflict with a BBC news team, said to be ‘essentially on the side of the victims’ having interviewed Operation Midland’s main witness.

The child sex abuse survivor, a businessman now in his forties known only as ‘Nick’, has accused ex-Tory MP Harvey Proctor of raping and murdering two children and helping kill a third.
In an extraordinary press conference called by Mr Proctor last week, he revealed that Scotland Yard was investigating whether he was part of the alleged Westminster VIP paedophile ring said to have abused children in the 1970s and 1980s.
