BBC Chairman Resigns
After Hutton Report


LONDON (Reuters) - The chairman of the BBC resigned on Wednesday after an inquiry lambasted some of the publicly funded broadcaster's reporting on the build-up to the war in Iraq, BBC News 24 said.
The inquiry by Lord Hutton into the suicide of Iraq weapons expert David Kelly had singled out journalist Andrew Gilligan, the BBC's management and its supervisory board of governors for criticism. BBC News 24 said Chairman Gavyn Davies had stepped down.
