(AP) The chairman of the BBC Trust says he expects to receive a report next month on an editorial error which led to falsely accusing a senior politician as a pedophile.

Chris Patten said on Tuesday that a second inquiry into the culture and practices of the broadcaster during the years when one of its stars, the late Jimmy Savile, is accused of having abusing hundreds of underage girls will take much longer.

Patten told a House of Commons committee that he couldn't estimate how much the two inquiries will cost. He said, I am afraid we must bear the costs, however much they are.

The furor over the false accusation against the politician led to the resignation of the BBC's director-general, George Entwistle.
