Crime­watch at new Beeb home

Midweek Sport - - AGONY SPECIAL -

THE BBC has had a third more rob­beries at its new north­ern head­quar­ters since mov­ing from London.

Fig­ures show that £325,000 worth of equip­ment was nicked last year, com­pared to £239,000 in 2010.

Five Live pre­sen­ter Rachel Bur­den last week dis­cussed crime lev­els in the Sal­ford area – where the £800 mil­lion Me­dia City is based.

She was in­ter­view­ing Olympic hopeful Laura Trott – who said she’d left her World Cham­pi­onship medals in her car.

Rachel replied: “What? Around here?”

Robbed items in­clude 138 ipads, £50,000 worth of cam­eras and 131 mo­bile phones.

The BBC said mea­sures had now been put in place to help re­duce crime.
