Licence-fee payers may be counting the cost of the BBC’s move to its new £200 million headquarters in Manchester, but one hotelier is cracking open the champagne.

Mandrake can disclose that the corporation has spent more than £600,000 at the Holiday Inn, Salford, since the start of 2011. “The total spend was £608,869,” confirms a BBC spokesman.

Last month, it was reported that the public-service broadcaster had spent more than £2 million on travel costs between London and the North West, including more than 24,000 train journeys and at least 500 flights, despite promising to employ more people locally.

David Cameron's Downton Abbey butler

Before he was forced to resign as the Conservatives’ co-treasurer, Peter Cruddas told undercover reporters posing as wealthy businessmen that they could could invite friends and clients to parties at “Downton Abbey” if they donated to the party. Last week, David Cameron came face to face with the butler in Downton Abbey, Jim Carter.

Help Catalonia: Catalan education and Spanish nationalism
Catalan education and Spanish nationalism Born and raised in Barcelona, I feel lucky to have been born in such a city, so beautiful and inspiring by the Mediterranean Sea; the capital of my country. My parent’s childhood took place during the post-war period, under the burden of an atrocious dictatorship that generated a cultural genocide in Catalonia.
