The leading candidate to replace Mark Thompson as director general of the BBC has been accused by Tory MPs of having a conflict of interest.
Ofcom chief executive Ed Richards is believed to have applied for the post, but is also running an inquiry into whether the definition of the 'plurality' of media organisations should include the corporation.

Conservative MP John Whittingdale, who is also the committee Chairman, said parliamentary convention dictated that members of the shadow cabinet should not sit on backbench committees.
