Don't know if people have seen this today....

The family of a BBC journalist who apparently killed himself after complaining about harassment have said they feel the corporation let him down.

Russell Joslin, a reporter for the BBC Coventry and Warwickshire local radio station, made three complaints about a senior (female) colleague (A) spanning four years before his death in October 2012.
The (BBC) report describes how Joslin became increasingly troubled at the height of the Savile scandal in October.

He was "seriously troubled and agitated" after reading comments in the Sunday newspapers about sexual harassment made by the individual he had concerns about, according to the report.
Extract from the BBC report

8.2 Folowing the news surrounding Jimmy Savile in October 2012, Russell was very upset to read comments in the Sunday newspapers about alleged sexual harassment made by the individual who he himself had concerns about. He was also being approached by print journalists who had made a link with him and Colleague A.
