Patten to fight on at BBC

By: Alex RingsellThe chairman of the BBC Trust Lord Patten today vowed to fight on to restore confidence in the corporation in the wake of the crisis that saw director general George Entwistle fall on his sword.Lord Patten said Mr Entwistle - who dramatically resigned last night - had been "destroyed" by the botched Newsnight investigation which wrongly implicated a senior former Tory in a child abuse scandal.However he made clear that he would resist calls to follow suit, insisting his job was to ensure the BBC learned the lessons from what happened and from the inquiries under way into the Jimmy Savile child abuse scandal.
