BBC Look East journalist Sally Chidzoy has lodged an appeal after her harassment, bullying and discrimination case against her bosses was thrown out on a technicality.

Miss Chidzoy's case was being heard at Cambridge in February but was dismissed after BBC lawyers argued she had spoken to Cambs Times journalist Sarah Cliss during an adjournment.

She had alleged she was harassed and discriminated against after first raising concerns in 2013 about her line manager's links to a charity she was investigating.

During the latter stages of the case a BBC barrister told tribunal chairman Judge Michael Ord Miss Chidzoy had been seen speaking with Cambs Times journalist Sarah Cliss.

The judge later ruled that Miss Chidzoy was guilty of unreasonable conduct by speaking with her and dismissed the claim. He argued it stretched the bounds of incredulity to say they had not discussed the case.
