Kay Burley Suspended Off Air for Six Months, Beth Rigby Off For 3 Months

Sky News statement:

“A small number of Sky News staff attended a social event in London on Saturday evening during which COVID-19 guidelines were breached.

As a result of an internal review Sky News presenter Kay Burley has agreed to be off air for six months, and political editor Beth Rigby and correspondent Inzamam Rashid have agreed to be off air for three months.

All those involved regret the incident and have apologised.

Everyone at Sky News is expected to comply with the rules and the company takes breaches like this very seriously indeed.”

The station realised that it would lose all credibility reporting on the pandemic with presenters who had so blatantly breached the rules after taking censorious positions themselves. Kay did not help herself by lying about the evening’s events.
