Andrew Marr was paid at least £5,000 for a Zoom call with a wealth fund, newly published documents have revealed.

The political interviewer received the sum for hosting an event, from the BBC offices, for investment management firm Brewin Dolphin in March. 

Justin Webb and Emily Maitlis are also among the BBC presenters who took on external work earning them £5,000 or more in the first three months of 2021, the corporation has revealed.

Since January, on-air talent in current affairs, sports news and some radio staff have for the first time had to declare external work which includes paid-for public speaking engagements, appearances or writing commitments.

The financial disclosures have been published as part of the BBC's first staff external events register, which covers January to March 2021, and fees are listed as either below or above £5,000.
