BBC DROPS Michael Vaughan from Ashes coverage after former England captain is accused of making ‘racist remark in 2009 towards a group of Asian players when he played for Yorkshire’










The BBC has dumped Michael Vaughan from covering the Ashes after he was accused of making racist remarks over a decade ago.

The corporation gave the former England captain the boot for ‘editorial reasons’ in a statement today.

A spokesman said: ‘While he is involved in a significant story in cricket, for editorial reasons we do not believe that it would be appropriate for Michael Vaughan to have a role in our Ashes team or wider coverage of the sport at the moment.

‘We require our contributors to talk about relevant topics and his involvement in the Yorkshire story represents a conflict of interest.’
