Gilligan admits to 'slip of the tongue'
Advertisements [?]
Andrew Gilligan, the BBC reporter who sparked the cataclysmic row between the government and the corporation, today insisted the broad thrust of his story was true but admitted to a series of mistakes that threaten to undermine the corporation's case.

He said he did not mean to accuse the government of inserting the 45-minute WMD claim into last September's Iraq dossier "knowing it was wrong", describing the phrase as "slip of the tongue".

And he confessed for the first time that his first report on the Today programme had not been as accurate as it should have been.
