BBC director general Tim Davie has responded to an inquiry into the rehiring of journalist Martin Bashir, which found no evidence of a cover-up.

"They didn't have that knowledge of the '96 events and what had happened, in terms of Martin Bashir's behaviour to secure the interview with Princess Diana," he said.

"If they had that, I don't think anyone would have made the hire," he said.
