A male BBC News reporter who flashed a female presenter just before she went on air after he returned to the office drunk from the staff Christmas party has kept his job after being told to apologise.
A report claimed that the newsman’s horrified colleague was able to keep her composure to give that night’s news bulletin.
BBC chiefs were informed about the disturbing incident but the journalist has been allowed to keep his job after he called the affected presenter to apologise.
However, the man is now reportedly working in another part of the broadcaster.
It is said that this incident, which occurred in 2015, was highly discussed at the offices of the regional news programme and it has come to the forefront following allegations of sexual assault and rape against Russell Brand, which he denies.

The man is said by a source to have been ‘very drunk’ at the office Christmas party and as the presenter was about to go live on air at just before 10.30pm, he entered the studio and ‘got his willy out in front of her’, the Sun reports.
They added that colleagues expressed disgust over the incident but grew angrier that the man’s behaviour went ‘unchallenged’.
The Sun’s source said that had the woman complained officially, bosses would have taken it further, but that if she did not want to raise it then the incident would be ‘airbrushed from history’.
But they added that nobody knew that the reporter had been told to apologise to the presenter ‘until now’.
When asked for comment by The Sun, the BBC declined to provide a comment on this specific incident.
But a spokesperson told the paper: ‘We treat any allegations of this nature very seriously.’
