Several BBC Breakfast team members not yet committed to move

Key BBC Breakfast team members are amongst those who have not agreed to Salford Quays move.

BBC Breakfast is to relocate to Salford Quays but several team members have not yet committed.

With a 31 March deadline for the planned move to Salford Quays, inside sources at the BBC have stated that less than half of the staff at BBC Breakfast have committed to the move north.

Several departments are due to move over the coming year, including children's, sport, learning, 5 Live and technology, along with flagship programmes such as Match of the Day.

One of the programme's presenters, Sian Williams is said to be as yet undecided.

The move of several BBC departments has sparked controversy over the expensive relocation packages being offered to staff who are prepared to move.

Many who have refused to move are hoping to be transferred within the BBC, but warnings have been issued that not all staff will be accommodated.

Over 1,500 BBC staff are seeking new posts within the BBC.

This follows the 600 redundancies made at the World Service, and 300 BBC online job losses.
