Ahmed wins claim

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

BROAD­CASTER Samira Ahmed has won her equal pay claim against the BBC.

In a unan­i­mous judg­ment, an em­ploy­ment tri­bunal found the Newswatch pre­sen­ter should have been paid the same as fel­low pre­sen­ter Jeremy Vine. Ms Ahmed asked why she was paid £465 per episode of Newswatch while Vine was paid up to £3,000 for each episode of Points Of View, work she said was com­pa­ra­ble.
