Samira Ahmed wins equal pay tribunal

Presenter Samira Ahmed has won the employment tribunal she brought against the BBC in a dispute over equal pay.

Ahmed claimed she was underpaid by £700,000 for hosting audience feedback show Newswatch compared with Jeremy Vine's salary for Points of View.

her work was like that done by Vine, and the BBC had failed to prove the pay gap wasn't because of sex discrimination.

Ahmed said she was "glad it's been resolved".

"No woman wants to have to take action against their own employer," she said, adding: "I love working for the BBC."


In response, the BBC insisted the pay for Ahmed and Vine "was not determined by their gender".
