BBC apologises for allowing climate sceptic Lord Lawson to claim that temperatures around the world had not risen over the last 10 years

'The BBC has apologised after it allowed global warming sceptic Lord Lawson to claim that temperatures around the world had not risen over the last 10 years.

A former Tory MP, Lord Lawson made the claim during a interview broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme in August.

The Corporation had initially rejected complaints from viewers, claiming that it was important to give air time to 'dissenting voices' in the pursuit of fairness.

However it has finally admitted that it breached its own editorial guidelines on accuracy and impartiality.

According to The Guardian, the BBC's executive complaints unit accepted that the assertions 'were, at the least, contestable and should have been challenged'.

During the interview with presenter Justin Webb, Lord Lawson said official figures showed that 'during this past 10 years, if anything, mean global temperature, average world temperature, has slightly declined'.'
