Man considers legal action after BBC wife's suicide

The husband of a BBC executive who killed herself by walking into the sea is considering taking legal action against the corporation, according to the Daily Mail.

Kari Boto died last summer, shortly after leaving her job at the World Service Trust, the charitable arm of the BBC World Service.

Tom Boto told the inquest that the corporation showed a “lack of support” and “nobody listened to her problems”.

But the human resources director at the BBC journalism group, Rachel Currie, said efforts had been made to reduce Boto’s workload and she had been encouraged to take leave.
